F&M Professor Kate Plass Awarded Grant for NSF Chemistry Career Workshop

Franklin & Marshall College has been awarded a grant from the National Science Foundation Division of Chemistry to help new chemistry faculty successfully apply for their first federal grant. Associate Professor Kate Plass of F&M and co-primary investigator Thomas Miller III of the California Institute of Technology are the organizers. This is a recognition of the success of F&M faculty in receiving NSF CAREER grants and an important opportunity to ensure a successful and diverse new generation of chemistry faculty.

The two-day event, expected to attract more than 100 junior faculty members from a range of institutions and demographics, will focus on crafting research ideas, planning educational and outreach activities and communicating these effectively within a National Science Foundation proposal.

The workshop is March 20-21, 2017, in Arlington, VA. For more information, visit 2017 NSF Division of Chemistry Early Career Investigator Workshop.
