Sponsor: The Arthur C. Cope Fund
Purpose: To recognize and encourage excellence in organic chemistry.
Nature: The award consists of $5,000, a certificate, and a $40,000 unrestricted research grant to be assigned by the recipient to any university or nonprofit institution. The recipient is required to deliver an awards address at the Arthur C. Cope Symposium. Up to $2,500 for travel expenses to the fall national meeting will be reimbursed.
The recipient may also be invited to make a presentation at an ACS regional meeting during the year after the Cope Award and Cope Scholar Award Symposium. In support of this presentation, the ACS Division of Organic Chemistry will provide a $500 honorarium and reasonable travel expenses to the regional meeting.
Eligibility: Ten Arthur C. Cope Scholars will be named annually in three categories: two who have less than ten years of experience since their terminal degree will receive the Arthur C. Cope Early Career Scholars Award; four who have 10 to 25 years of experience since their terminal degree will receive the Arthur C. Cope Mid Career Scholars Award; and four who have 25 plus years of experience since their terminal degree will receive the Arthur C. Cope Late Career Scholars Award. No individual may receive a second Arthur C. Cope Scholar Award. Recipients of an Arthur C. Cope Award are ineligible to be named an Arthur C. Cope Scholar.
The award will be granted regardless of race, gender, religion, ethnicity, nationality, sexual orientation, gender expression, gender identity, presence of disabilities, and educational background.
Deadline: November 1 (annual review).
Establishment & Support: The Arthur C. Cope Scholar Awards were established in 1984 by the ACS Board of Directors, on recommendation of the ACS Division of Organic Chemistry, under the terms of the will of Arthur C. Cope. The Cope Scholar Awards are supported by income from the Arthur C. Cope Fund, which is administered by the ACS.
