Scholarships

Award Criteria

Three scholarships are awarded at each level (1st year and 2nd year) to students who participate in the Greater Houston Section's annual Scholarship Examination. The awards will be $2500, $1500, and $1000 for first, second, and third places, respectively. Scholarship awards and certificates for honorable mentions will be presented at the Awards Banquet of the American Chemical Society-Greater Houston Section (ACS-GHS) held in the Fall.

Scholarship funds will be paid directly to the Financial Aid Office of the student's college or university, once registered. Award funds will not be paid directly to the student and cannot be used for other educational purposes. Award disbursement may be delayed to later years of a student's program if necessary.

Eligibility Requirements 

  • Students registering for the 1st year exam must be currently enrolled in first year chemistry. 
  • Students registering for the 2nd year exam should have completed the first-year chemistry course and be enrolled in AP Chemistry or 2nd year of IB Chemistry.
