Beyond Benign's Green Chemistry
Fellowship Program

students save earthThrough this program, Beyond Benign staff train college student fellows from Massachusetts colleges. The fellows then work with our staff of scientists and education specialists to bring green chemistry to K-12 students. Staff and fellows discuss green chemistry topics, careers in science and lead lab experiments and hands-on activities at over 40 classroom and school events to demonstrate sustainable solutions to
scientific, environmental and social challenges.

College students inspire younger people to pursue studies in the sciences through our outreach mentoring program, while also raising awareness of environmental problems and environmentally benign solutions.

Stepping out from behind the lab bench to communicate research in simple and meaningful ways is incredibly valuable to college students. Green chemistry offers concrete solutions to many of the environmental challenges society faces. Inspiring the next generation of scientists is an excellent way to help create a sustainable tomorrow.

The fellows serve as ambassadors of green chemistry on a broader scale by helping to educate and inform the public on topics related to sustainability. Staff and fellows participate in over 20 community events annually throughout New England. By reaching out through activities based on real-world examples, we make science and sustainability relatable to everyone.

Student Travel AwardsGreen Chemistry Institute


Through a generous grant from the National Science Foundation, the American Chemical Society Green Chemistry Institute is providing participation support through a limited number of travel scholarships for students to attend the 15th Annual Green Chemistry & Engineering Conference. The NSF Student Scholars program reimburses students (enrolled in an accredited U.S. university at the undergraduate, graduate or postdoctoral level) for travel, accommodations, and registration fees for the conference.
