The Minority Affairs Committee of the ACS Georgia Section of the American Chemical Society is pleased to announce the opening of nominations for the 2017 Percy Julian Award. This award will be given to two high school seniors in recognition of scholastic achievement and leadership ability. Each recipient will receive a $250 book scholarship and a one-year (student) membership in ACS.
