The ACS Hach Professional Development Grant is open for applications. The grant funds professional development for high school teachers that will enhance your teaching skills and improve the learning of your students. Up to $1500 of professional development expenses may be covered by the ACS Hach Professional Development Grant. The professional development activities must take place by August 1, 2020.
What would that look like for you? Have you been wanting to attend a Modeling InstructionTM workshop? Maybe you are hoping to attend the Biennel Conference on Chemistry Education (BCCE2020.org) that will be held at Oregon State University July 18 - 23 next summer.* Whatever your preferred professional development is, this is an excellent opportunity that you do not want to miss.
Covered expenses include
Conference or workshop registration fees
Tuition and educational expenses
Books and online instructional resources
Applications will be accepted through January 4th, 2020.
A great resource for grant writers is available in an AACT Webinar: Enhance Your Chemistry Classroom With Other People's Money
If looking for a grant to purchase classroom supplies, apply for the ACS Hach High School Chemistry Classroom Grant instead. The application window for that grant is February 1 - April 14, 2020.
