Eli Lilly Travel Funds

The ACS Women Chemists Committee (WCC) and Eli Lilly and Company sponsor a program to provide funding for undergraduate, graduate, and postdoctoral female chemists to travel to meetings to present the results of their research. Through this program, WCC and Eli Lilly and Company continue to increase the participation of women in the chemical sciences.

The next application deadlines for receipt of applications is September 15 for meeting between January 1 and June 30, 2015.

Applications should be limited to one per research group. Awards will be given with preference to the following order:

  • Any applicant who will be making her first presentation (regardless of format) at a national or major meeting.
  • Graduate or postdoctoral applicants who have not presented at a national or major meeting since completing their undergraduate degree.

Only US citizens and permanent residents are eligible. Those who have received a prior award under this program are ineligible.
