The PMSE division is excited to be conducting the final competition for the 2016 Eastman Chemical Student Award in Applied Polymer Science. In this technical session, at the fall 2016 national meeting of the American Chemical Society in Philadelphia (Tuesday, August 23, 1:30 - 4:50pm, Independence Ballroom B, Sheraton Downtown), each finalist will deliver a technical presentation on their doctoral research. This award was initiated by the PMSE division in 1985 to honor the best paper and presentation by a student at or near the completion of their Ph.D. in a polymer related field. This prestigious award has been sponsored by the Sherwin Williams Company (1985-96), ICI (1997-2008 ), AkzoNobel (2009-2013), and the Eastman Chemical Company (since 2014).
The following applicants have been selected as this year’s finalists:
In the final competition, the awardee will be selected based on the quality of his/her oral presentation. A special thanks to the Ph. D. advisors for each of these contestants and to all those who assisted in the selection of the 2016 finalists. The winner of this award, selected by the judges following the final competition, will be announced following the conclusion of the national meeting.
The PMSE division greatly appreciates Eastman’s sponsorship and involvement in the management of this prestigious award. A special thanks to Jason Jenkins, who serves as rotating chair of the award committee and key technical representative at the Eastman Chemical Company.
