The American Chemical Society's Division of Organic Chemistry sponsors an award program called the Undergraduate Award in Organic Chemistry, which is intended to recognize senior students who display a significant aptitude for organic chemistry and to encourage further interest in the field.

The award consists of a letter of recognition from the ACS Division of Organic Chemistry and an award certificate signed by the division chair, as well as a one-year free membership (or Affiliate membership if the student is not an ACS member) to the Organic Division for all the awardees.

The faculty members of the Organic Division in the chemistry departments select a top graduating senior student majoring in either chemistry or biochemistry who has demonstrated excellence in organic chemistry based on a combination of research experience, coursework, and a desire to pursue a career in chemistry.
