Undergraduate Travel Grants

The Rochester Section Undergraduate Travel Grant Program provides funds each year to support travel for undergraduate students to attend a professional ACS conference at which they will present their research, as the presenting author, in a poster or oral presentation. Any full-time undergraduate student in chemistry, chemical engineering, or a related field at a college/university in the Rochester ACS Section is eligible for an Undergraduate Travel Grant.  Preference will be given to students who have not received the Rochester Section ACS Undergraduate Travel Grant in the past. Complete eligibility and application details can be found below. 

In 2020, The Undergraduate Travel Grant Program is providing $400 towards travel for undergraduate researchers for both the Spring and Fall National meetings.
