Project SEED Scholarships

Project SEED scholarships are nonrenewable and only awarded to first-year college students. Selection is based on achievement in school, success in the Project SEED program, financial need, and intended chemical-related field of scientific study.

To be eligible for a Project SEED scholarship, high school senior students must have worked at least one summer at a science institute under the Project SEED program. Scholarships are restricted to students who plan to pursue in a chemical science or engineering field such as chemistry, chemical engineering, biochemistry, materials science, or some other closely related major. The scholarships are intended to assist former SEED participants in their transition from high school to college and consist of up to $5,000.

Project SEED College Scholarship Applications are to be submitted only by students who have participated in the Summer I or Summer II SEED program and who are entering their senior year in the fall. If you have questions or would like more information about the scholarship, contact projectseed@acs.org or call (800) 227-5558 ext. 4380.

Yousef Abdelmotaal, Scholarship Recipient

My experience with Project SEED encouraged me to pursue a career in chemistry and opened my eyes to a whole different world of science. Ultimately, I hope I can unitize the skills I learned over the summer in not only pharmacy school, but also in my everyday life. Like Project SEED, I hope I can teach other students effective communication, confidence, teamwork, and collaboration."
