    Am I to send a hard copy along with the PDF?

      No, a PDF is fine. Just make sure to use a subject line of “ACS Travel Awards” so that it’s easily distinguishable.

    Can I apply for the travel award if I am presenting a paper in a differnet division other than the DBC?

    • pthomas2 says:

      I’ll ask the program chair and post the answer here. My instinct is yes, as long as it’s generally in the field of biological chemistry, but I’ll get confirmation.

      • pthomas2 says:

        Here’s the decision. Others may apply, but preference will be given to presenters within the division.
