****I. M. Kolthoff Enrichment Awards for Undergraduate Students

Selection of recipients for the 2016 I. M. Kolthoff Awards for undergraduate research in analytical chemistry is now complete. The I.M. Kolthoff Award is given annually to deserving undergraduates who have done undergraduate research in the field of analytical chemistry, broadly defined, in celebration of the life and accomplishments of the late Professor Izaak Maurits Kolthoff, viewed by many as the father of modern analytical chemistry.

The Kolthoff awards recipients are being provided travel funding up to $750 for undergraduate students to present a poster on their undergraduate research this year at either PITTCON 2016 (March 6-10; Atlanta, GA) or the Spring ACS National Meeting & Exposition (March 13-17; San Diego, CA).

Preference will be given to undergraduate chemistry majors with strong academic records who have made significant research contributions in the analytical sciences for whom this would be their first national meeting presentation and who have access to limited other support mechanisms.

These instructions are likely to be used again for the awards for 2017, which should open in late summer 2016:
A completed application consists of the completed application form, a copy of the abstract submitted for presentation at either PITTCON 2016 or the Spring 2016 ACS National Meeting, and a nomination letter, written by the student's undergraduate research advisor. All applications and nomination letters must be submitted in electronic form to Professor Kim Frederick, Chair of the DAC Education Committee. The nomination letter should be submitted directly by the student's advisor via E-mail to Professor Kim Frederick. The subject line of the email should state "Letter of Recommendation on Behalf of [Student's Name] for Kolthoff Award." The deadline for submission of completed applications for the I.M. Kolthoff Award for consideration for the 2016 competition will be October 1, 2015. Please direct all questions to Kim Frederick.
