Applications Being Accepted for TheDorothy and Moses Passer Education Fund

This Fund was established by a generous donation of Dorothy and Moses Passer. Moses (Mike) Passer was for many years the head of the ACS Education Division. The Fund grants for teachers at two- and four-year colleges or universities that do not have any advanced degree programs in the chemical sciences.

The awards support continuing education activities that must be directly related to the applicant's teaching and must take them away from their campus.

The applicant must be a full time faculty member at his or her institution and member of the Division of Chemical Education.

The Division of Chemical Education, Inc. selects a division member each year for the annual DivCHED “Outstanding Service to the Division Award”. The award is presented at the fall National ACS meeting during the Sunday evening CHED Reception. 

The Division of Chemical Education funds a Travel Award each year in support of a division member who presents and fully participates in an international chemical education conference held outside the U. S.

Why are you a chemist? Many of us would agree with Eli Pearce, Past President of the American Chemical Society (ACS), when he said "my excellent high school teacher was definitely responsible for my choosing chemistry as a career." And now you can join the effort to ensure that the great teachers who launch so many scientific careers are recognized and rewarded by their professional society!

DivCHED provides this service to members to grant financial support for travel to meetings. Up to 12 members will receive the award each year.
