AChemS Fellowships for Diversity

AChemS is pleased to announce the availability of fellowships for under-represented individuals interested in the chemical senses. The fellowships this year, funded by the National Institute on Deafness and Other Communication Disorders, cover the cost of registration to attend the Annual Meeting of AChemS. Awardees will be recognized on the AChemS website and at the annual meeting. Members of African-American, Hispanic-American, Native-American, Pacific Islander, or other ethnic or racial groups under-represented in chemosensory research, as well as veterans and those with physical and mental disabilities will be considered.

Applicants need not be AChemS members. Undergraduates, graduate students, post docs, research associates, research assistants and junior faculty are eligible for the fellowship. Awardees will be selected according to their academic background, experience, and research interests.

Applicants are required to submit a complete application, curriculum vitae and two letters of recommendation. Documents are to be uploaded on the application form.

Application Deadline Extended: April 7, 2021
