The U.S. Department of Energy and the American Chemical Society, Division of Nuclear Chemistry and Technology, sponsor an INTENSIVE 6-week course (June 14, 2021 – July 23, 2021) in Nuclear and Radiochemistry for undergraduates held in San Jose, CA or Long Island, NY with 12 students each.
The course consists of lectures on the fundamentals of nuclear science, radiochemistry, and their applications in related fields. Laboratory work introduces state-of-the-art technology and instrumentation used in basic and applied nuclear science. Also included are a Guest Lecture Series and tours of nearby research centers at universities, National Laboratories, and other nuclear facilities. Students meet and interact with prominent faculty and scientists who are working in nuclear and radiochemistry, nuclear medicine, nuclear forensics, and related fields.
Funding is provided by the U.S. Department of Energy. Provided are a stipend of $4000, all tuition and fees, housing, transportation to and from the Summer School location, books, and laboratory supplies. Transferable college credit is awarded through the ACS accredited chemistry programs at San Jose State University (7 units) or the State University of New York at Stony Brook (6 units).
For additional information, view the program flyer or email questions to Dr. Lynn Francesconi (firstname.lastname@example.org).
The application deadline is February 1, 2021.

The ACS Scholars Program is more than just a scholarship, it’s a network of passionate chemical professionals who want to help and support future chemists during a crucial time in their lives.
The program is a community that dedicates itself to representing minority students from high school seniors to undergraduate students who want to study chemical sciences. Scholars are chosen based on career objective, academic standing, leadership skills, financial need and involvement in school or community activities.
Of the previous scholars in the ACS Scholars Program:
- Over 300 have completed a Ph.D. program
- More than 50% of alumni chose to purse higher degrees
- 90% earned baccalaureate degrees with 80% in the chemical sciences
Apply and learn more information here. Applications close March 1.

Congratulations to undergraduate Emily Rodriguez on receiving the American Chemical Society Scholar Award! The ACS Scholars Program awards renewable scholarships to underrepresented minority students majoring in undergraduate chemistry-related disciplines, and who are also intending to pursue careers in the field of Chemistry. Recipients can receive up to $5,000 per academic year.
“Chemistry has always been a door for me; it has opened the way to many opportunities and adventures. Being selected as an ACS Scholar has not only validated all of the hours put into my study of chemistry, but it will also allow me to pursue endeavors in which I can not only enrich my knowledge of chemistry, but also spread my love of chemistry to others. The American Chemical Society has always been a resource for me to use educationally, and I look forward to the many other opportunities now available to me as a scholar of this organization.” -Emily Rodriguez
A local section of Younger Chemists’ Committee (YCC) here in central Ohio is being developed. The purpose of a YCC is to form a community of early career scientists interested in making connections with their peers in a professional yet informal setting. This organization will facilitate social, academic, and professional development events throughout the year, as well as work closely with national YCCs and the local Columbus ACS section to help our community expand and evolve.
In order to begin establishing this organization, this Survey Form has been provided for students to fill out. If you are interested in participating in the first event which will be held at Pins Mechanical Co. on October 26th from 6-8PM, please fill this out.
Please consider attending and getting involved with the Columbus Section YCC!
