ACS is experimenting with a three day in-person program
dedicated to (1) helping you help others through science outreach and (2) helping you succeed with ACS. These ACS Outreach Summits are an extension of the Festival Training Institute
program and are being piloted for 2023.
Two events are planned for 2023:
Summit 1: Washington DC, USA. Oct 2 - 4, 2023
Summit 2: Delhi, India. Nov 6 - 8, 2023
Please submit your interest for either summit by September 1, 2023
Up to 30 people may be invited to attend each event, and approximately 10 people per event will receive full, domestic, economy-class travel support from ACS.
For these first events, only volunteers based in the US or India will be selected.
Coordinators of Chemists Celebrate Earth Week and National Chemistry Week; coordinators for the U.S. National Chemistry Olympiad; winners and applicants for international Chemistry Festival grants; domestic and international Student Chapters; and interested individuals are all invited to apply!
The tentative schedule is:
