The Sepracor Award in Chemistry|
The Sepracor Award is presented annually for the top undergraduate presentation (oral or poster) at the Annual APICS/CIC Chemistry Student Conference (ChemCon).
The award allows the winning student to attend the annual national conference of the Canadian Society for Chemistry
(CSC) by covering the expenses associated with registration, travel and accommodations. The value of the prize is
not to exceed $1000 in any given year and is administered through the APICS office.
By accepting the prize, the winner agrees to have his or her name, presentation title, and abstract provided to the sponsor.
The award will be made following a procedure determined by the APICS Chemistry Committee.
Typically, the judging committee will include at least one CIC (Chemical Institute of Canada)
representative and one student, in addition to APICS members.
In any year, if there is no suitable candidate, the judging committee reserves the right to not give the award.
The decision of the judges is final.
The winner must be enrolled full time at a college/university in Atlantic Canada.
The winner should be an undergraduate chemistry major; special allowances
will be made for undergraduate students pursuing a double major, of which
chemistry is a major focus, or another closely related field working on a
project that has relevance to chemistry.
This award is sponsored by Sepracor Inc. Canada
