On behalf of the Division of Environmental Chemistry of the American Chemical Society, I am pleased to inform you that you have been selected as a winner of one of the 2015 Graduate Student Paper Awards. This is the highest award given to students by the Division of Environmental Chemistry.
You will be presenting your paper at the Fall ACS Meeting in Boston at the special C. Ellen Gonter Environmental Chemistry Awards Symposium (usually it is on Tuesday afternoon) and will be our guest (i.e. don’t buy a dinner ticket) at the Environmental Division Dinner Tuesday evening. At the dinner, you will receive a check for $1000 (the money is to offset some of your travel costs for attending the meeting).
In order for me to put together the symposium, I need some materials from you. You will need to submit an abstract through the Program and Abstract Creation System (PACS). Professor Simonich can give you guidelines on the abstract submission process (if you haven’t submitted one before) or you can call me with any questions. I will be in touch with further information about the symposium.
