About this funder:



What does making maple syrup have in common with a tour of a local brewery? Both are examples of student-led programming funded by the ACS New Activities Grant.

The New Activities Grant helps active ACS student chapters fund innovative chemistry-related projects for the first time. Through this program, chapters are eligible to receive up to $500 in matching-funds to help bring their ideas to life.

You can learn more about this opportunity by visiting the funder's website.
