EAS Undergraduate Research Award

Here is an opportunity for you to reward an undergraduate student who is doing outstanding work on a research project. The Eastern Analytical Symposium and Exhibition annually offers awards to recognize and encourage scientific promise and research talent in several undergraduate chemistry students. Each college may nominate one student who will be a senior in November of 2012. Nominate one of your students!


Winners will receive an all expense paid trip to the EAS, be presented with plaques at an award luncheon, and have an opportunity to present their research project in a poster session. In addition, they will be able to participate in all the usual activities of a world-class scientific convention and meet distinguished members of their future profession. Professors who nominate the winners will receive free full-conferee registration for the EAS. All professors submitting nominations will receive free admission to the exposition. The EAS will be held at the Garden State Exhibit Center in Somerset, NJ, November 12 to 15. Full information on the EAS technical program and exposition can be found at www.eas.org.


The awardees will be students who are already involved in research, in the broad field of analytical chemistry. Nominations should be in the form of a letter including the following:

  • ·         Your appraisal of how the student handles research, deals with problems, and gets involved in the research process.
  • ·         Student’s postal and e-mail addresses for both the current spring semester and the summer.


Nominations should be submitted by e-mail to student.awards@eas.org.

Questions: Contact Dr. Kebbekus at this e-address, or by phone at             609-577-2261      .

Nominations are due by April 30. All nominations will be acknowledged within three days (usually the same day), so if you don’t get a response, please send it again!
