Our 2020 Summer School has been postponed until 2021 due to COVID-19 concerns. The 63 individuals accepted into the 2020 program are still scheduled to travel to Golden - just a year later than planned.

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.


The Summer School is proudly sponsored by the ACSACS Petroleum Research Fund, and ACS Green Chemistry Institute
