C. Ellen Gonter Environmental Chemistry Award
Purpose: This award is presented to graduate students at U.S. and international universities who submit the highest quality research papers. Award winners present their papers at the Fall ACS Meeting.
Eligibility: All graduate students (M.S. or Ph.D.) enrolled full-time in an environmental chemistry or environmental engineering program, and have completed one year of graduate study are eligible. The research paper must be relevant to environmental chemistry, the student must be the first and major author, and the work must have been done while attending the student’s current institution. The paper may have been submitted to a journal at the time of submission, but it should not have already been published or presented at another meeting. A major advisor may nominate only a single student. Either the student or the major advisor must be a member of the Division of Environmental Chemistry.
