Information for Current Recipients

Congratulations on receiving the ACS-Hach Professional Development Grant!

ACS requires all recipients to submit a report on your accomplishments, challenges, activities, and overall experience resulting from your grant award. Especially with the year that we had, we would love to hear how you faced the unexpected and challenges.  

Not only is the final report a way to help you meet the conditions of the award, it is also your opportunity to share your experience with us and others who may be interested in applying in the future. Take a few moments and tell us about your experience.  

Below are the guidelines for your final report.  Final reports are due by March 30, 2022.

Due to the pandemic, we are waiving the resubmission rule to wait another year to apply for another ACS-Hach Professional Development Grant.  You may apply for a grant this year.  We are currently accepting applications through January 22, 2022.  Submission of a final report will still be required.
