Grant of $18,500 to a USA or territories undergraduate higher education institution to host a leading chemical sciences researcher for at least two lectures, and for research stipends for undergraduate students. The researcher is expected to give at least two lectures in the chemical sciences. One of the lectures should be accessible and promoted to a wide audience that includes the general public. The remaining lecture(s) may be more technical.

The lecturer is expected to spend more than one day at the institution to substantively interact with undergraduate students and a broad range of faculty over the period of the visit.

A portion of the award is to support two undergraduates in summer research. The undergraduates engaged in summer research are expected to work with mentors in contemporary chemistry.

The award total is $18,500. Of this amount, $2,500 is an honorarium for the lecturer, and $5,000 is to be allocated to the support of the lectures (for example: travel, accommodation, receptions or dinners, etc.). The remaining $11,000 is to support the summer research of two undergraduate students. Each stipend is to be no less than $4,500.

The balance may be used to defray costs associated with the research or the scientific advancement of each student—e.g., travel to scientific meetings. Charges associated with indirect costs or institutional overhead are not allowed.
