Support a Student to Attend the 2015 Conference

NOBCChE has launched a kickstarter campaign to raise $25,000 by August 31 to assist with supporting 180 high achieving undergraduate and graduate students of color to attend the conference in Orlando September-22-26.  The conference is an excellent opportunity for students to network with employers, obtain mentors, present their research and polish their job seeking skills.  Thanks to our corporate and academic partners we have already raised $10,000!  Help us get the rest of the way there with your tax-deductible donation.  Each gift of $250 will support one student to attend.  Contributions of all amounts are welcome.
