SETAC/ACS ENVR Student Exchange Program
Share |

SETAC and the American Chemical Society (ACS) Environmental Division have developed a Graduate Student Exchange Program to 1) expand the professional and scientific interactions of student members of the two participating organizations and 2) to promote networking between the ACS and SETAC. One award will be made annually in the amount of $1,000 for attendance at an ACS meeting that is held in the calendar year following the SETAC North America Annual Meeting at which the award is judged. In addition, ACS will provide a complementary registration for the meeting. www.acsenvr.com
