AOAC and Herbalife have joined forces to launch a new scholarship to support student researchers engaged with research in analytical or molecular testing with special emphasis in botanicals, macro or micro-nutrients, or contaminants (chemical, biological, and environmental).

The program, supported by contributions from Herbalife, will award up to two scholarships each year. Winners will receive a complimentary 1-year AOAC student membership and a cash prize of US $4,000 for educational purposes. They will also receive financial support to attend the AOAC INTERNATIONAL Annual Meeting. This support includes a US $1,000 travel fund in addition to registration for the student and his or her advisor to attend the meeting.

At the meeting, students will be formally recognized during the Opening Plenary and Awards Session and will have the opportunity to present their work to international analytical science leaders in their field.

The student and advisor will also receive complimentary travel and lodging to visit Herbalife headquarters in Los Angeles, California U.S.A. and present their research.

Winners will also be featured in AOAC’s Inside Laboratory Management magazine.
