Purpose: To recognize and encourage successful and exemplary partnerships.

Nature and Establishment: This award was instituted in 2014 by a contribution from Marinda Li Wu out of her Immediate Past ACS President’s budget as part of her presidential initiatives to promote partnering for progress and prosperity. It is Dr. Wu’s hope that this will be an ongoing award to recognize the importance of partnering and working together towards common goals to advance the global chemistry enterprise.

Partnerships can include international ACS chapters, ACS divisions, or other entities domestic or overseas. The awards committee of the ACS Regional Meeting Board will select the regional P3 Award winners. The regional awardees will then become nominees for the Global P3 Award to be selected by the International Activities Committee of the National ACS. DEADLINE: August 15, 2016
