On May 14, 2020, the ECS Board of Directors approved a proposal by the Individual Membership Committee to grant student members full voting rights.

Student Membership Expands

Student members are the fastest growing segment of The Electrochemical Society. From 2010 to 2019, student membership grew by nearly 30 percent. Since 2016, ECS Student Chapters doubled to more than 100 chapters. Excellent and highly active student chapters are located around the globe. News about these chapters and their activities is chronicled in recent issues of Interface. In the period from 2010 to 2019, student members showed tremendous passion for ECS and supporting its key missions. Students are an invaluable part of the Society’s membership and community. (more…)

ECS congratulates the 2020 Outstanding Student Chapter winner, the ECS Yamagata University Student Chapter, for their dedication and commitment to the advancement of electrochemical and solid state science and engineering education.

The Outstanding Student Chapter Award was established in 2012 to recognize distinguished ECS student chapters that demonstrate active participation in The Society’s technical activities, establish community and outreach activities in the areas of electrochemical and solid state science and engineering education, and create and maintain a robust membership base.

Young students entering the science field take on a significant amount of new material and learning in the classrooms, but that doesn’t mean we can’t learn just as much from them, too! ECS student chapters, ran and created by students themselves, inspire us every day. Their remarkable accomplishments and contributions to the Society not only help guide and encourage talented scientists and engineers around them but also contribute to the future and growth of the sciences.

The Daniel Cubicciotti Student Award was established in 1994 to assist a deserving northern California student to pursue a career in the physical sciences or engineering. Qualified candidates will be a full-time or part-time graduate or advanced undergraduate student in good standing at a university or college in northern California. The award consists of an etched metal plaque and a $2,000 prize which is intended to assist with the educational expenses. In addition to the main award, up to two other students (honorable mentions) will receive a framed certificate and a $500 prize.
