Michigan Green Chemistry Governor’s Award application deadline extended

The deadline for students to apply to the Michigan Green Chemistry Governor’s Award competition has been extended to July 15, 2009. The awards were announced by the Green Chemistry Roundtable and will honor industrial, academic, student, and nonprofit efforts to green Michigan’s economy. The award program is open to individuals, groups and organizations in Michigan, both nonprofit and for profit, including academia, educators, nonprofit advocacy groups, and industry. Award recipients will be honored at a special dinner at the Detroit Institute of Arts in Detroit on Sept. 24.

  • Business:  individual efforts, team efforts and/or corporate efforts for a green chemistry technology in any of the four focus areas identified in the nomination packet.
  • Academic:  academic research and development efforts in any of the identified four focus areas.
