International Activities and Resources
IUPAC Young Observer Program
The USNC sends U.S. Observers (citizens or permanent residents) under the age of 45 from industry, academia, and national laboratories to the IUPAC World Chemistry Congress and General Assembly, held every two years. To date, the program has supported over 200 scientists, many of whom have continued to serve on IUPAC activities and contribute at the international level.
- Interested in traveling to the US for professional activities? The ACS and the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine can help!
- How to start an International Student Chapter
- How to start an International Chemical Sciences Chapter
- Mobility Mentoring matches young chemists to mentors who have worked in the European Union, US-based mentors are being recruited to expand the program in 2018 and beyond.

YCC Virtual Symposium
To echo the YCC’s initiative in fostering and connecting communities of younger chemists across the world, the YCC will be hosting a virtual symposium in Fall 2019. We are currently seeking collaborators and partners for this program for funding support, recommendation, and advice. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in supporting this initiative.
