Sigma Epsilon is a national chemistry honor society founded in 1919 at
The National Society is governed by an Executive Council of elected national officers. Chapters are guided by their own locally elected officers. The National Society meets in biennial conventions for the purpose of governance, fellowship, and scientific exchange in the form of invited lectures and student research presentations. Each individual giving a paper at the biennial convention receives $25 (the John F. Conn Award), and the outstanding paper presenter receives $50 (the W. Allan Powell award). The DeLap-Holcomb scholarship of $100 and the Roy W. Sonntag award (non-cash award up to $50 value, such as a membership in the American Chemical Society) are given at the local level annually at the discretion of the local chapter to a worthy junior or senior chemistry major.
The 45th Biennial Conference is scheduled for October 11-13, 2013 at Frostburg State University.
If you do not already have a chemistry honorary, we encourage you to consider forming
a chapter of Gamma Sigma Epsilon National Chemistry Honor Society as a way to
honor your chemistry students. Further information may be obtained by
contacting any one of the national executive officers.
