It is a pleasure to inform you that the I&EC Division is now receiving nominations for the 11th annual I&EC Division Fellows Award. I&EC Division will make up to four awards annually:

*The deadline is 30 November 2016* 

(1) I&EC Division Fellow:
A chemist or engineer is selected from an academic, industrial, or government laboratory based on innovative contributions to the areas in which they have published within applied chemistry and/or chemical engineering. Patents are given equal weight to papers in the open literature and nominations from industry are encouraged.

(2) I&EC Division Early Career Fellow
The criteria are the same as those for Division Fellow but the award is reserved for an individual 40 years old or younger and thus in the earlier stage of their career.

(3) I&EC Division Applied Chemical Technology Fellow:
A chemist or engineer with an undergraduate degree as the terminal degree is selected from an academic, industrial, or government laboratory based on outstanding technical contributions.

(4) I&EC Division International Fellow:
The criteria are the same as those for Division Fellow but the award is reserved for an individual working outside the United States.

For the Division Fellows (US) + ACT Fellow:
The award consists of a plaque naming the awardee a Fellow of the I&EC Division, registration to the Spring meeting at which the award will be presented, complimentary one-year membership in the Division, and a $1000 travel award. The awardee will be announced on the Division's website and the award presentation made at the Spring 2017 meeting at a symposium to be organized by someone chosen by the awardee.
