The 2017 IUPAC-SOLVAY International Award for Young Chemists is intended to encourage outstanding young research scientists at the beginning of their careers. The awards are given for the most outstanding Ph.D. theses in the general area of the chemical sciences, as described in a 1000-word essay. The award is generously sponsored by Solvay.
IUPAC will award up to five prizes in 2017. Each prize will consist of USD 1000 cash and travel expenses to the 2017 IUPAC Congress in Brazil (July 2017; see www.iupac2017.org).
Each awardee will be invited to present a poster on his/her research and to participate in a plenary award session, and is expected to submit a review article for possible publication in Pure and Applied Chemistry.
Entrants must have received the Ph.D. (or equivalent) degree, or completed all Ph.D. requirements including successful defense of the doctoral thesis, during calendar 2016 in any of the countries that are members or associate members of IUPAC. Entrants need not be citizens or residents of one of these countries at the time the application is submitted. The research described in the entrant’s thesis must be in the field of the chemical sciences, defined as “chemistry and those disciplines and technologies that make significant use of chemistry.”
The IUPAC-SOLVAY Award only recognizes work that was performed while the entrant was a graduate student. Application requires the submission of a completed entry form online.
Complete applications must be received at the IUPAC Secretariat by 1 February 2017.
