Fall 2015 GSSPC
We would like to congratulate the Fall 2015 GSSPC, from the University of Minnesota!
Applications for the Fall 2015 GSSPC are now closed (as of midnight on May 23rd). Thanks to everyone who submitted an application! We'll notify all applicants of our selection by Friday, June 13th.
We are recruiting a group of 4-8 graduate students to serve as the GSSPC for the Fall 2015 ACS National Meeting, which will take place in Boston, MA with the theme "Innovation from Discovery to Application". The GSSPC members are responsible for selecting a symposium topic, inviting speakers, fundraising, and coordinating the logistics of their symposium, as well as recruiting and mentoring the next year's GSSPC.
To apply, please send the following materials to firstname.lastname@example.org by May 23rd, 2014:
- A CV or resume for each member of your committee
- A brief statement (500 words or less) describing why you want to be the next GSSPC
- Two symposium theme ideas (that are different from previous graduate student symposium themes), with a brief paragraph describing each topic (include names of potential symposium speakers if you have any in mind)
Please consult this page on the ACS website for more information about the GSSPC program and recent symposium topics. Feel free to contact us if you have any questions about the GSSPC program or the application!
