We'd be very grateful if in your next ACS Technical Division
newsletter, bulletin or website update you'd consider including the
following call for applications for the 2005 ACS International
Initiatives Program.

Thank you and saludos.

The American Chemical Society International Initiatives Program: Call
for Applications for 2005

In 1990, the American Chemical Society (ACS) established a program to assist
scientific exchanges with selected countries.  Called ACS International
Initiatives, the program of competitive grant awards was designed to foster
scientific collaboration with scientists who have little opportunity to
interact with U.S. laboratories.

The goal of the 2005 ACS International Initiatives program is to provide
professional development opportunities for chemical scientists (chemists,
biochemists, materials scientists, etc.) and chemical engineers, either
in-country or in the United States, and build ACS's relationships with
chemically related organizations in countries in Latin America and Africa.

Types of activities eligible for funding include:

1. Visits by chemical scientists from countries to U.S. laboratories, with
reciprocal visits to the country by the U.S. partners strongly encouraged;
2. As a second priority, visits by U.S. chemical scientists to eligible
countries to offer short courses;
3. Scientists residing outside the United States are not required to be ACS
members to apply to the program.  Proposals that involve groups of
researchers in eligible countries or leverage other ACS programs or domestic
and international sources of support are especially encouraged.
4. The following countries are eligible for participation in the 2005
program: Bahamas, Botswana, Colombia, Costa Rica, Ecuador, Jamaica, Kenya,
Nigeria, Panama, Senegal, South Africa, Tanzania, Trinidad & Tobago,
Uruguay, and Venezuela.

All travel and associated expenditures for this year's ACS International
Activities Program must be completed by December 31, 2005. Application
deadline: March 1, 2005. For full details about the ACS International
Initiatives program, and an application, please visit:

The American Chemical Society (ACS) is a not-for-profit membership
organization, founded in 1876 and chartered by a 1937 Act of the U.S.
Congress. With a membership of over 159,000 chemists, chemical engineers,
and other practitioners of the chemical sciences, it is the world's largest
scientific society. ACS is recognized as a world leader in fostering
scientific education and research, and promoting the public's understanding
of science.
