Does anyone happen to know where I could get a high quality image of the Division of Inorganic Chemistry Logo? I would like to get it engraved on a plaque to track our award winners and past experience tells me that the image at the top of the page is not high enough quality to engrave.


I'm happy to send along the logo to anyone who would like it for a plaque. Just contact me by email.

Thanks for taking care of this Barb.

Thank you.

At the top of this page it says "You will receive a confirmation email with additional information after you submit this page." 

I am wondering if the student also receives a confirmation email from the ACS at this time? 

Only the person who submits the nomination gets this confirmation. I'll process student awards later in the summer.

I am an ACS member and responsible for the awards for the past 25+ years. I appreciate this opportunity for our students.

Thank you for doing this.

is there a list of past awardees available?

Are students who just graduated (Dec '16) eligible?

Paul - I haven't updated the list yet for 2016, but you can find previous award winners here.

The 2017 award is intended for someone who is a undergraduate in 2017. Many institutions choose to give their award to a senior, but that is not a requirement.

Thank you for taking your time to organize these awards. We have an annual awards ceremony each year and the students and faculty are appreciative of the effort you make to help us celebrate our students' success.

Thank you for organizing this award and placing the submission in one place.  We also have annual ceremoy awards for our students and it is always a happy event to see students wrap up their years with us as undergraduate students.


I highly recommend Mr. Jake Sirlin for the DIC Undergraduate award. This has been done in conslutation with other faculty-Professor's Burjor Captain and Marc Knecht at the University of Miami. Carl Hoff
