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. The awardee will have the responsibility to communicate information and insights gained at the conference to the membership through available DivCHED publications and by postings on the DivCHED Website.
At the New Orleans meeting, the Executive Committee adopted guidelines developed by the International Activities Committee (IAC); these are described below. Please send questions to Akiko Nakamura, the current chair of DivCHED IAC.
The applicant must be a member of the Division of Chemical Education and be a full-time college, university, or high school faculty member. Preference will be given to junior and/or under-represented faculty members who have not had the opportunity to attend an international meeting in chemical education.
- An announcement about the availability of this Award for the following year will be submitted for publication in the Fall CHED Newsletter, appropriate issues of JCE, and to C&EN News. The announcement will also be posted on the CHED website.
- The application package is due November 30 each year. The award, presently up to $2000.00, is made for the following year.
- CHED-IAC members serving on the Awards sub-committee appointed by the CHED-IAC Chair will review the applications.
- The selected applicant will be announced by January 15 each year. An alternate will be selected in case the original awardee is not able to attend.
