The Center's expertise in applying a range of computational and machine learning methods to synthesis offers unique opportunities for the participation of chemists with disabilities. We have partnered with the American Chemical Society's Committee for Chemists with Disabilities (ACS-CWD) to offer undergraduate research opportunities for students with disabilities.

Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowships
Due to the coronavirus pandemic the 2020 Summer Research Fellowships program has been canceled.
Please check back for updates on the 2021 Summer Research Fellowships program.
The C-CAS is pleased to offer summer undergraduate research fellowships for students with disabilities at any of the five partner universities, including Berkeley, Colorado State, Notre Dame, Princeton and Utah. The program is open to any undergraduate students with disabilities (mobility, sensory, learning, psychological, medical, or other), whose research interests are aligned with the topics covered by the C-CAS (organic mechanism and synthesis, computational chemistry and computer science).
The fellowship provides a stipend and housing to support a 10-week program performing state-of-the-art research during the summer in any of the PI research groups and the opportunity to present your work at an American Chemical Society Meeting.
Applications will require a personal statement describing your research interests, a copy of your transcript, and three letters of recommendation
Resources for Chemists with Disabilities
- The ACS-CWD maintains an online listing of reports on scientists with disabilities
- The Science & Engineering Leadership Initiative (SELI) at the University of Delaware maintains a resource page for STEM students with disabilities. SELI also offers a REU program.
