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

Applications are invited for the 2015 I. M. Kolthoff Award for undergraduate research in analytical chemistry. 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 provide travel funding up to $750 for undergraduate students to present a poster on their undergraduate research this year at either PITTCON 2015 (March 8 - 12, 2015; New Orleans, LA) or the 2015 Spring ACS National Meeting & Exposition (March 22-26; Denver, CO). 2-3 awards will likely be made between the two meetings. Students presenting at the Spring ACS National Meeting are encouraged to present in the Analytical Division poster session.

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.

A completed application consists of the completed application form, a copy of the abstract submitted for presentation at either PITTCON 2015 or the Spring 2015 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 2015 competition will be December 15, 2014. Please direct all questions to Kim Frederick.
