Support student driven cutting-edge research

The Student Affiliates of the American Chemical Society (SAACS) is committed to serving the students in the Department of Chemistry & Biochemistry at CSU, Chico by providing strategic career growth and independent problem-solving opportunities. One of the primary ways we achieve these goals is through the sponsorship of student research associates in the Chemistry Summer Research Institute (CSRI). CSRI is a summer research opportunity that introduces our students to independent chemical research and helps our students be more competitive for internships, graduate schools, and medical/dental/pharmacy schools. Our campaign has set a goal of $15,000, which will support three undergraduate student researchers during the 2018 CSRI. Every donation goes directly to help students. Please give our students the ability to make scientific advancements that will launch their careers and will contribute to the betterment of society. Current research efforts focus on solar energy, clean water, development of new medicines, mitigation of industrial wastes streams, and renewable bioplastics!
