Honeywell Hometown Solutions, the company’s corporate citizenship initiative, donated a $10,000 grant to Canisius in support of the Western New York Chemistry Olympiad. Representatives from Honeywell’s Buffalo Research Laboratory presented the check to Mariusz Kozik, PhD, chair of chemistry and biochemistry and coordinator of the Western New York Chemistry Olympiad, at a gathering of Honeywell and Canisius College administrators on June 4.

The funds will be used to offset costs associated with students’ preparation and participation in the Western New York Chapter of the International Chemistry Olympiad. The Chemistry Olympiad is a local, national and international competition designed to stimulate and promote achievement in high school chemistry. It is sponsored nationally by the American Chemical Society and hosted locally by Canisius.
