Astrochemistry Dissertation Award

Each year the subdivision recognizes an outstanding Ph.D. thesis from within the preceding two calendar years. Applications are due around March 1. The winner will receive a $500 prize, an invitation to give a talk at the Fall ACS meeting, and a $500 travel award provided by ACS Earth and Space Chemistry to attend the Fall ACS meeting. The recipient and nominators must be members of the Astrochemistry Subdivision, and the Ph.D. must be conferred by the deadline. The 2020 recipient of the award is Dr. Andrew Turner, currently the Assistant Director of the W. M. Keck Laboratory of Astrochemistry at University of Hawaii at Manoa.
