International Travel and Project Grants

IAC Stopover Grants

The ACS Committee on International Activities (IAC) Stopover Grant application is currently open. Stopover Grants allow early career and/or senior ACS members to make "stopover" visits during planned international travel during 2017. Planned stopover visits should focus on fostering science driven relationships with chemists and relevant practitioners abroad with a focus on exchange and collaboration. Grants (up to US$500) are available through a peer-reviewed and competitive process to reimburse costs of local travel, accommodations, and incidentals for visits to work with existing and prospective scientific partners (and their students) for the purposes of conducting lectures, training, and building research collaborations.  Application deadlines are May 1 and September 1. Fill out this form to apply. For more information, contact Intlacts@acs.org.

An IAC approved a plan to award competitive Global Innovation Grants of up to US$5,000 to ACS Local Sections, Technical Divisions, International Chemical Sciences Chapters, and Governance Committees. For more information or to apply for a grant, visit the GIG webpage.

Global Innovation Imperative (Gii)

Global Innovation Imperative

The mission of Global Innovation Imperatives (Gii) is to create community and knowledge transfer to stimulate global scientific innovation that meets societal imperatives. The program was originally started and implemented by ACS in collaboration with the U.K.-based Society of Chemical Industry.  Now administered solely by the ACS, the Gii program fosters creative solutions to imperatives of global significance (e.g., clean water, food and health, etc.). For more information, visit the official Gii webpage.
