 CINF Scholarship for Scientific Excellence Co-sponsored by InfoChem and Springer
 The international scholarship program of the Division of Chemical Information
 (CINF) of the
 American Chemical Society (ACS) co-sponsored by InfoChem (www.infochem.de) and
 Springer
 (www.springer.com) is designed to reward students in chemical information and
 related sciences for
 scientific excellence and to foster their involvement in CINF.
 Up to three scholarships valued at $1,000 each will be awarded at the 249th ACS
 National Meeting
 in Denver, CO, March 22  26, 2015.  Student applicants must be enrolled at a
 certified college or
 university; postdoctoral fellows are also invited to apply. They will present a
 poster during the
 Welcoming Reception of the Division on Sunday evening at the National Meeting.
 Additionally, they
 will have the option to show their poster at the Sci-Mix session on Monday
 night.  Abstracts for the
 poster must be submitted electronically through MAPS, the abstract submission
 system of ACS.
 To apply, please inform the Chair of the selection committee, Guenter Grethe at
 ggrethe---att.net,
 that you are applying for a scholarship. Submit your abstract at http://maps.acs.org using your
 ACS
 ID.  If you do not have an ACS ID, follow the registration instructions and
 submit your abstract in the
 CINF program in the session CINF Scholarship for Scientific Excellence.  MAPS
 will be open for
 abstract submissions from August 25, 2014, to October 17, 2014. Additionally,
 please send me a
 2,000-word abstract in electronic form by January 31,2015, describing the work
 to be presented.
 Any questions related to applying for one of the scholarships should be directed
 to the same e-mail
 address.
 Winners will be chosen based on contents, presentation and relevance of the
 poster and they will be
 announced during the Sunday reception.  The contents shall reflect upon the
 students work and
 describe research in the field of cheminformatics and related sciences.
