Passer Funds Award Committee Report, Fall 2013

Three applications for funds from the Passer Endowment were received for the April 1, 2013 submission deadline.  Awards were made to two individuals.  Congratulations are extended to William Miller and Hala Schepman.

William Miller,  Sacramento City College, plans to attend the cCWCS Materials Science  and Nanotechnology for Chemists workshop at Beloit College in July 2013.

Hala Schepman, Southern Oregon University, plans to attend the cCWCS Medicinal Chemistry workshop at the University of Minnesota–Twin Cities in July 2013.

An announcement made at the Executive Committee meeting in Philadelphia reported that as per Mrs. Passer’s Last Will and Testament, the principal in the Passer Endowment has increased.  That should provide an increase of funds available for the future – now we have to hope the interest rates increase!

Please check the ACS Division of Chemical Education for details pertaining to this opportunity  and encourage eligible colleagues to submit a request for professional development support from the Passer Endowment.  Funds are still available and the next submission deadline is September 1, 2013.  Submissions, preferably in PDF format, are to be sent via e-mail to or
