Applications should be limited to one per research group. Awards will be given with preference to the following order:
- Any applicant who will be making her first presentation (regardless of format) at a national or major meeting.
- Graduate or postdoctoral applicants who have not presented at a national or major meeting since completing their undergraduate degree.
Only US citizens and permanent residents are eligible. Those who have received a prior award under this program are ineligible. If an applicant were to win the Merck Research Award, she would not be eligible for the WCC/Eli Lilly award for travel to the fall national ACS meeting.
