Financial support from the ACS for African early career chemists to attend the 2015 FASC/CSN meeting in Nigeria

To contribute to the scientific success of the 2015 FASC and Chemical Society of Nigeria (CSN) Conference in Abuja, Nigeria, the American Chemical Society International Activities Office would like to give financial support for up to10 African early career chemists, chemical engineers, and related practitioners to attend the event.  This support will cover the travel, registration and accommodation costs of those supported. The awards will principally be used to support early career chemists (faculty – within 5 years of PhD completion, post-doc researchers and PhD students) working in areas of chemistry and chemical engineering related to and advancing the conference themes
