Shining Star Award

The Local Sections Committee and Career and Education Operating Council are proud to administer the Shining Star Award which recognizes outstanding volunteerism at the AIChE local section level and encourages members to become more involved in local section activities.

Project Connect Grants

The Project Connect Grants for Local Sections were inaugurated in 2001 to assist local sections with their efforts to reach out to students, recent chemical engineering graduates, and new engineers.

Program Planning Grants

Program Planning Grants are intended to assist local sections with their membership outreach efforts. The objective is to encourage development of a program involving more than a single event.
