Student Research Awards

Sponsored by Merck & Co.

EAS continues to actively support a Student Research Awards program to recognize students involved in research in the broad field of analytical chemistry. We have expanded the Student Research Awards to include both graduate and undergraduate students. In the spring of each year, we encourage professors to identify undergraduate Juniors in college and graduate students who demonstrate special talent in research. Nomination criteria include excellent grades, appraisals of how the students handle their investigations, their approach and how they resolve problems and publicly disseminate their work. For more information on nominating a student for 2022, click here.
