Canisius College has received a $10,000 grant from Honeywell’s Buffalo Research Laboratory to help it host the annual Western New York Chapter of the International Chemistry Olympiad.

The Chemistry Olympiad, sponsored in the U.S. by the American Chemical Society, promotes interest and achievement in high school chemistry with local, national and international competitions.

The Honeywell Lab here has supported the local Chemistry Olympiad for more than 20 years and has been its principal supporter at Canisius College since 2002.
