CMA Local Initiatives
ACS local sections may serve as a valuable resource to assist in the effort to ensure the availability of a pool of talented chemists in the future, since it is at the local section level where underrepresented minority groups may be introduced to the ACS. For this reason, the Committee on Minority Affairs is offering a one-time mini-grant of up to $500 to local sections to support the implementation of programs that encourage the participation of underrepresented minority scientists. Follow this link to apply.
