ECS has a number of student chapters which provide an opportunity to understand electrochemical and solid-state sciences, to have a venue for meeting fellow students, and to receive recognition for organized scholarly activities and community services. ECS offers current members of Student Chapters free annual Student Memberships to qualified full-time students. Eligible students must be full-time undergraduate or graduates registered for a degree in natural science or engineering and a participating member of their Student Chapter.

ECS Outstanding Student Chapter Award
Presented annually at the fall ECS bi-annual meeting, the Outstanding ECS Student Chapter Award recognizes one student chapter annually that has distinguished itself through active participation in the Electrochemical Society’s technical activities, outstanding community and outreach activities in science and engineering education, and a robust membership base.

The 2014 ECS Outstanding Student Chapter Award recipient was The University of Texas at Austin. Founded in 2007, The University of Texas at Austin Student Chapter has provided an interdisciplinary forum for students from different branches of the physical sciences and engineering to meet and discuss emerging ideas about electrochemistry and solid state sciences. Led by faculty advisor Arumugam Manthiram and Chapter President Josephine Cunningham, the UT Austin Student Chapter has worked on improving the lives of the students and community in the Austin, TX area through outreach programs and organized seminars. In the 2013-14 year, the UT Austin ECS Student Chapter hosted seminars from leading scientists in the ECS; informal “chalk talks” where student members presented their research to the chapter; and exposed young minds to the ideas of electrochemistry and solid state science at the annual Explore UT event and Meridian Science Day. In addition, the recognition of UT Professors Allen J. Bard and John B. Goodenough with Honorary Memberships by the ECS was a highlight this year. With all of the events they put on, the membership of The University of Texas at Austin ECS Student Chapter has continued to grow, supporting the legacy of UT Austin as a leader in the fields of Electrochemistry and Solid State Sciences.

For 2014, University of Maryland and Valley of the Sun (Central Arizona) were recognized as Chapters of Excellence. For more information on applying for the 2015 Outstanding ECS Student Chapter Award, please see the award rules.
