Graduate Students

ASA, CSSA, and SSSA have a rich community of graduate students who are making great research contributions to ACS disciplines and the future of our field. Students qualify for discounted membership rates and discounted Annual Meeting registration.

In addition to online resources, the Grad Student Committee plans sessions just for grad students at the Annual Meeting each year. We constantly strive to enhance the graduate school experience by providing professional development and leadership skills, career tips from experts, and quick reads to improve grad school life. Check out this article by Rachel Owen and Sara Vero on the grad student experience at the 2015 Annual Meeting and explore additional resources below!
