Outstanding Young Women in Chemistry Award

In an effort to promote interest in chemistry among young women, Iota Sigma Pi offers an award for female high school students with high academic achievement in chemistry.  The award includes an official certificate and recognition in the Iotan, the national publication of the Society. 


Students nominated must be graduating female High School seniors with a grade point average (GPA) of 3.8/4.0 or higher and have taken at least one high school chemistry course.  Nominations can be made by the chemistry instructor(s) or principal of any high school in the United States.  Only one student should be nominated from each submitting high school, and only one award will be given to each school each year.


Please fill out the nomination form here and attach an official student transcript.  Nominations will be received December 1 through March 1, and award certificates will be mailed to schools by April 1.  Iota Sigma Pi asks that each school make an effort to present the award at an official school event such as an honors banquet, assembly or graduation.
