Local ACS Conference - Encourage Eligible Students to Participate
It is certainly great when we can send our students to national conferences with the field's leading scientists, but the big name conferences are not an option for all of our students. Do you have a student who would like to present at a conference this year, but either wasn't ready for a national conference or didn't have the time to travel? Or maybe you have a veteran student hoping to boost his or her resume with another conference appearance, an oral presentation, or maybe even an award. The 63rd
Annual American Chemical Society's (ACS) Undergraduate Research Symposium could be the answer.
Sponsored by the New York Chemistry Students' Association of the ACS's New York Section, the conference provides a rare opportunity to give an oral presentation right here in New York at Queensborough Community College in Bayside, Queens. Plus, students will have a poster ready to go since this conference takes place on Saturday, May 9
, just a few days after our PRISM Symposium!
Abstracts are being accepted until March 20 and then the early registration deadline is April 20. Check out the conference website
for the submission links. If interested, the student can speak with Ed about the possibility of PRISM help with the registration fee that is due for students who are not members of ACS.
Do Your PRISM Seniors Have Good News to Share?
We are excited to learn that several of our graduating PRISM seniors are starting to receive acceptances to graduate programs or job offers. We want to congratulate and recognize them in our PRISM newsletters and perhaps at the Symposium.
If any of your students receive this kind of good news, please be sure to let us know the details at email@example.com
or encourage the student to email us with the details. As you know, tracking of these accomplishments is an important part of how we can continue to secure PRISM funding.
Chronicle - Last Call
We are working feverishly to complete this year’s PRISM Chronicle
and our deadline to send it to the printer is quickly approaching. We thank you if you sent in either a new profile or an update.
If you have a last minute profile addition or update that you'd like us to accommodate please do email this information immediately to Eric at firstname.lastname@example.org
. Additionally, within our layout, we use pictures of students and mentors in the field, lab, or at conferences. Feel free to email any other picture(s) you may have that could liven up this year's Chronicle.
