The Local Section Member Engagement LS-MEET grant program aims to strengthen and build community in Local Sections of the American Chemical Society. This grant offers funding of up to $2,000 for programs that enhance recruitment efforts to attract new members and strengthen communities in Local Sections. The funds can be used for various purposes, such as organizing specific events, ongoing programming, and purchasing technology or materials.
New funding opportunities may include targeted events for local chemist communities that are currently not involved in the local section, such as schoolteachers and industrial chemists. Alternatively, the grant can also be used to create additional events that bring Local Section members together beyond programs already funded by LSAC Science Café or IPG.
