The Columbus Section Award is presented every two years to an outstanding scientist in the field of chemical sciences, including chemistry, biochemistry, biomedical sciences, chemical engineering, materials sciences, and science education. It is presented in recognition of development of professional careers and the promotion of chemistry and of chemists and engineers in the broader community, within the geographic area of the Columbus Section.
The awardee is selected from a group of scientists nominated for the award by their colleagues and must be within the membership of the Columbus Section of The American Chemical Society, as must the nominator.PLEASE NOTE: All ACS members residing in the Central Ohio area are automatically members of the Columbus Section.
The nomination materials of the candidates must include a letter by the nominator, several letters of recommendation from colleagues of the nominee, a curriculum vitae for the nominee, a list of publications and any other information considered relevant.
The award committee is composed of a chair and members from industry, academia and the independent chemical areas, and selection of awardee will take place in time for the May Section meeting. The award consists of a plaque to be held by the recipient for two years, a medallion, and a cheque. In addition, the recipient will deliver a lecture at the time of award presentation.
