The ACS has put out a call for nominations for the 2013 Rising Star Awards from the Women Chemists Committee (WCC). This is a relatively new award category, designed to recognize the contributions of 10 outstanding mid-career women scientists. Maybe you know someone who should be nominated! Here is a brief summary of who may qualify for this award (from the ACS website):
“The award is open to all female ACS members in chemistry and chemical engineering working in academic, industrial, government, non-profit or other employment sectors. Appropriate candidates will typically be no more than 15 years from receipt of their terminal scientific degree and have demonstrated outstanding promise for contributions to their respective fields. Applicants can either be self-nominated or can be nominated by another individual for this award.”
The deadline is June 1st. The ACS flyer will be uploaded soon. Click here to download theonline nomination form on the WCC Rising Star Award page of the ACS website.
