The Chemical Society of Washington is pleased to support travel expenses for the 27th BCCE Conference. Of the applicants, two high school teachers will be selected for the CSW High School Teacher Travel Grant each cycle.
The goal of this award is to encourage the professional development of local high school teachers and enhance their chemistry instruction. If selected, the awardee agrees to give a presentation or conduct a workshop at the ACS headquarters in Washington, DC during fall 2022 (exact date will be determined). The purpose of the presentation/workshop is to share the new knowledge gained at the conference with peers from other schools within the CSW area. The awardee, or the awardee’s academic institution, is strongly encouraged to invite other science teachers to the aforementioned event.
CSW encourages that high schools in the CSW region nominate one high school teacher per school and send an application to CSW for consideration.
The BCCE Conference provides chemistry educators with opportunities for interacting with colleagues at all levels in both formal and informal settings. Instructors who are new to chemistry education and those who have years of teaching experience will find this conference to be an excellent source of materials, techniques, and chemistry content.
High school teachers interested in obtaining a travel grant to attend the 27th BCCE at Purdue University, IN, July 31-Aug. 4, 2022, need to complete an application by February 14, 2022 and submit it to: CSW@acs.org subject: BCCE Teacher travel grant.
The teacher will be notified of the award status by March 21, 2022.
