Julia Fine receives the Agrochemical Education Award for Student Travel

Posted: August 21, 2015

The AGRO Division has established an endowment fund in collaboration with Bayer CropScience that is used to promote an understanding of the role of chemistry in agriculture. To address this goal, awards are made through the Division’s Education Committee.

Selected undergraduate and graduate students are awarded up to $600 each to help defray costs of attendance to give poster presentations at ACS National Meetings. First, Second, and Third place winners receive an additional cash award.

The subjects of presentations pertain to the chemistry of the AGRO Division. Topics relate to pest management chemistry including synthesis, metabolism, regulatory, risk assessment, biotechnology, resistance, mode of action, residues, delivery, fate/behavior/transport, and agronomic practices. The AGRO Division is also interested in chemical products made from agricultural commodities and byproducts, including biofuels and the issues surrounding their production.
