ACS Summer School on Green Chemistry & Sustainable Energy
We are currently planning to hold this year’s program, but we are carefully monitoring the rapidly-changing COVID-19 situation.
We ask that you do not make any travel arrangements until we determine if the Summer School can be safely held in Colorado in July. Those who have been accepted will be notified of any changes via email.
We will make the decision in time to allow those who need to obtain a visa sufficient time to do so. If the Summer School needs to be cancelled this year, attendees accepted for this year will automatically be accepted into the 2021 program. Please reply to emailed acceptance notifications by April 3, 2020.

Graduate students and postdoctoral scholars explore scientific solutions to global sustainability challenges, including sustainable energy, at the ACS Summer School on Green Chemistry & Sustainable Energy.
This week-long residential program includes presentations by green chemistry and sustainable energy experts, poster sessions, collaborative projects, and discussions on the roles of science and technology in solving global sustainability challenges.
The Summer School is open to those currently studying in the Americas. Most applicants are enrolled in or have completed advanced degree programs in chemistry or chemical engineering, but applicants from related disciplines are welcome to apply.
Coach-class airfare, ground transportation, shared on-campus housing, meals, and all program costs are provided to participants. International attendees will be reimbursed for the cost of visas.
