The American Chemical Society Division of Analytical Chemistry Graduate Fellowship Program is designed to encourage basic research in the field of analytical chemistry, to promote the growth of analytical chemistry in academic institutions and industry, and to provide recognition of future leaders in the field of analytical chemistry. The program has endeavored to be a model of the benefits of cooperation between the academic and industrial communities, with chemical companies employing PhD analytical chemists sponsoring the fellowships for outstanding analytical graduate students.

The Graduate Fellowship Committee of the ACS Division of Analytical Chemistry, which is comprised of representatives from the sponsoring companies and analytical faculty from undergraduate institutions, evaluate the applications and make the following fellowship awards:

  • Agilent/ACS Analytical Graduate Fellowship (9-month, $25,000)
  • Eli Lilly and Company/ACS Analytical Graduate Fellowship (9-month, $25,000)
  • Eastman/ACS Analytical Graduate Summer Fellowship (3-month, $8300)

Eligibility criteria

The applicant must be a full-time student working toward a PhD and must have completed the second year of graduate study by the time the fellowship period begins. Analytical chemistry must be a central part of the applicant’s PhD thesis. The applicant’s research supervisor must be a member of the American Chemical Society Division of Analytical Chemistry.

Only one nomination per research supervisor will be accepted. Nine-month fellowships may begin on June 1, July 1, August 1 or September 1, so applicants for nine-month fellowships must not complete their thesis research before March 1 of the academic year in which they have received an award. Summer Fellowships begin on June 1 of the calendar year, therefore applicants for summer fellowships must not have completed their thesis research before September 1 of a given calendar year.

Applicants for awards in previous years are encouraged to reapply. Previous 9-month fellowship recipients, however, are not eligible for a second award.

Applicants must demonstrate outstanding research ability and accomplishment, as evidenced by peer-reviewed publications in analytical chemistry. Consequently, fellowships are normally awarded to students in their third or fourth years of graduate study when they have established a publication record.
