Any graduate student studying the chemical nature of cellulose, paper, textiles and other renewable materials is eligible. This includes, but is not limited to:
* study of the biosynthesis of biomass components and natural fibers,
* novel chemical routes for separating biomass into its constituent components
* innovative processes for converting biomass, its individual components, or natural fibers into value-added products, and
* the development of new analytical techniques for characterizing the chemical properties of cellulose, paper and textile fibers.
The competition is open to students at graduate research programs in North America. The applicant must either be currently enrolled or have graduated with the past year.
