ACS works to advance the field of chemistry around the world. Scientists outside the United States have formed International Chemical Sciences Chapters (ICSCs) to allow chemists within a geographic area to connect with one another, as well as ACS members around the world. Forming a chapter brings additional benefits to international members, beyond what they already enjoy as members of ACS.
To hear the real-life story of how ACS membership has been central to the success of chemist Dr. Jason Chruma, check out the video below:

ACS encourages its international members to consider forming an ICSC as a means of staying connected with scientists in their region, and with the ACS membership around the world.
International Chapters are eligible for a number of awards and grant opportunities issued by ACS. Find out more information about them here:
