    Here’s the decision. Others may apply, but preference will be given to presenters within the division.

    I’ll ask the program chair and post the answer here. My instinct is yes, as long as it’s generally in the field of biological chemistry, but I’ll get confirmation.

    Can I apply for the travel award if I am presenting a paper in a differnet division other than the DBC?

    No, a PDF is fine. Just make sure to use a subject line of “ACS Travel Awards” so that it’s easily distinguishable.
