Project SEED is designed to encourage economically disadvantaged high school students to pursue career opportunities in the chemical sciences. During the summer, student work in the laboratory doing hands-on research guided by a scientist-mentor.
Project SEED is for the student from an economically disadvantage background with an annual family income not exceeding $34,000. Exceptions can be made for incomes of up to $42,000, depending on family circumstances. Students who have not graduated from high school are eligible for the Summer-I program, and those returning for a second summer of research may participate in the Summer-II program.
College scholarships are available for SEED students who have graduated from high school and plan to attend college. Contributions are accepted by the American Chemical Society for the benefit of this program. The contribution can be designated to support a Project SEED student in New Jersey. Send the contributions made out to American Chemical Society to:
The American Chemical Society is a Congressionally Chartered 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization.
All ACS members and friends . . . Come and hear about the latest research going on in area laboratories.
Take an hour or two to see the posters that you choose, as displayed by eager SEED students. You will receive highlights of the research they did in organic, pharmaceutical, biological, analytical, environmental, computational, inorganic, physical, and polymer chemistry, as well as in chemical and bioengineering, food, cosmetic, plant, and materials science, and drug development.
Your Interest Is Critical
Thanks to your help, the SEED students will be further inspired. SEED students worked at NJIT, Rutgers and Cook College (3 campuses), Seton Hall, Stevens Institute, Montclair University, Beth Israel Hospital, UMDNJ-Robert Wood Johnson, William Paterson University, Ramapo College, New Jersey City University, Fairleigh Dickinson, Fordham, Long Island University, Brooklyn College, NJ Meadowlands Environmental Org., Hackensack Hospital, and the Public Health Research Institute in Newark.
Thanks are due to mentors for their kindness and dedication of, and for funds donated by school boards, corporations, the ACS SEED endowment, and many individual chemists.
