Survey Ad Text: Grad students, this is your last chance to be heard! Win a $1,000 travel award or a 32 gigabyte iPod.

The American Chemical Society, with support from the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation, is conducting a study of career plans and preparation among graduate students in the chemical sciences, including chemistry and chemical engineering, in the U.S. to learn about the graduate school experience from the perspective of graduate students.


Eligible Participants

ACS strongly encourages every graduate student in the chemical sciences and chemical engineering to take the survey. Participation is voluntary and strictly confidential, and gives students a great opportunity to share their experiences. Responses will help the ACS and chemistry and chemical engineering departments develop programs and resources to benefit graduate students.

Participants will have the chance to win a $1,000 travel award to an ACS national meeting, and a chance to win a 32 GB iPad.

Launch Date

The survey will be launched on August 1, 2013 and will remain open through August 31, 2013 (EST). If you are a graduate student in the U.S., but have not yet received an email with a link to take the survey, please complete this form and a link will be emailed to you.
