The founders of the Hach company established the Hach Scientific Foundation in 1982. One of the programs that has emerged from this foundation is the High School Chemistry Grant Program. This grant is available to high school chemistry teachers. Teachers that have ideas to improve the teaching and learning of chemistry in their classrooms are encouraged to apply. Teachers are given up to $1500 for their ideas. The 2015 application cycle begins February 1st and runs until April 1.
