Awards

GOAL

The vision of the Passers is to provide support for faculty in small programs and who are somewhat isolated from others in their discipline.

The Division of Chemical Education, Inc. selects a division member each year for the annual DivCHED “Outstanding Service to the Division Award”. The award is presented at the fall National ACS meeting during the Sunday evening CHED Reception. 

The Division of Chemical Education funds a Travel Award each year in support of a division member who presents and fully participates in an international chemical education conference held outside the U. S.

Why are you a chemist? Many of us would agree with Eli Pearce, Past President of the American Chemical Society (ACS), when he said "my excellent high school teacher was definitely responsible for my choosing chemistry as a career." And now you can join the effort to ensure that the great teachers who launch so many scientific careers are recognized and rewarded by their professional society!

DivCHED provides this service to members to grant financial support for travel to meetings. Up to 12 members will receive the award each year. The DivCHED Travel Award provides up to 80% of travel expenses for one meeting with a limit of $1,000 for the BCCE or Spring National ACS Meeting. To be considered for this award, you must be in at least your third year as a member of the Division of Chemical Education at the time of application. The award application deadline is September 15, 2017. Click here for more information and to apply now.

In 2006, The Division of Chemical Education established an endowment to underwrite an Awards Program designed to recognize, encourage, and stimulate outstanding teachers of high school chemistry in the ten Regions of the American Chemical Society.
