The nominee must be a distinguished younger scientist who is highly regarded by their peers for significant contributions to an area of chemistry or related multidisciplinary area of chemistry.
The following criteria will be used to evaluate each candidate for the lecture award:
Each ACS Committee and Technical Division may nominate up to two individuals for this award. The nominee must be solicited by and nominated through one or more of the ACS Committees or Technical Divisions and approved by the respective Chair.
The nominee need not be a member of the nominating group or a member of the ACS.

A Review Committee composed of the MPPG (Multidisciplinary Programming Planning Group) Chair, the Thematic Program Organizers, and Chair appointees will review all submitted nominations. Each Division and Committee may submit up to two (2) nominations. Nominations not chosen for previous meetings may resubmitted at the Division’s discretion as long as the nominee meets the nomination criteria in respect to the meeting dates.
