Project SEED is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year, and we hope to make it our best year yet! The summer will kick off with an orientation in early June (date TBA), which will include recognition of this milestone. Eleven projects at local universities and national labs have been approved, and student applications are still rolling in. Applications from students are due no later than May 5th. If you know a student or teacher who may know students you believe would make good candidates for Project SEED, have them contact the Project SEED coordinator, Wes Farrell, at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
We are also seeking donations to the Noel Turner Fund at this time. The Turner Fund is used exclusively to support student researchers. The generosity of our community is what makes Project SEED possible. If you would like to make a contribution to the Noel Turner Fund, please send as a check payable to “The Chemical Society of Washington” to 1155 16th St NW, O-218, Washington, DC 20006.
