Award Opportunities and Recipients


Please contact Julie Kaplan (julie.kaplan@nyu.edu or 212-998-8478) for all award information and questions.

The New York University Department of Chemistry is proud to assemble many of the opportunities for awards and honors available to its members.  This information is not exhaustive -- thankfully, there are more opportunities for scientists and students of science than can be contained on one website!  However, we hope this resource will serve our community well.  We invite you to check the list periodically and see what is out there.  Please also check out the archive of recipients for a taste of why we are so proud.  Note that award information changes often and should always be confirmed at the source.
