Beginning Fall 2013, the FAU Chemistry Club will be offering Travel Grants for undergraduate and graduate students to help supplement the
costs of traveling to professional conferences. We will offer in-state grants of up to $250, and out-of-state grants of up to $500 to complement
the funding made available through Student Government, the ChemEd Fund, and the ACS Travel Grant. The number of Travel Grants awarded
per semester will be determined by the Funding Committee based on availability of funds and will be announced at the beginning of each
semester. To apply for this grant please make sure to meet the following eligibility criteria:
> Must be an active (paid) member of the Chemistry Club for the academic year.
> Must be an ACS member (to join the ACS please go to: https://www.join.acs.org/)
> Must be presenting a Chemistry related project and provide proof of acceptance of poster and/or oral presentation.
To apply for this grant you must submit your application by completing the following Form and e-mailing the required documentation to: Dr.

If you are receiving funding from Student Government, the ChemEd Fund, and the ACS Travel Grant you must submit your application of
reimbursement to them FIRST, and any costs not covered by them will be covered by the FAU Chemistry Club Travel Grant (as long as the costs
are within the approved list mentioned above).
You will need to submit an itemized package showing all required documentation and source of funding.
Please request any other funding source to give you a letter stating what they have reimbursed you for.
