To support chemistry in the classroom, the Hach Scientific Foundation is working with the University of Wyoming to offer scholarships to students who will be focusing on chemistry and who agree to pursue a state-certified teaching career. Applicants must have at least a 3.0 high school GPA. Applicants must also enter into one of the UW College of Education secondary science options that provides state certification to teach high school chemistry. Applicants may also pursue dual majors in the UW Chemistry Department (B. A. or B. S. in chemistry) and the UW College of Education (secondary science teaching education).
The recipient of the scholarship will receive $6,000 per year for five years of undergraduate study, provided he or she maintains at least a 3.0 GPA and remains an education major with a focus on chemistry.
