The Friends of the Chemistry Olympiad (FChO) are an association of former participants and supporters of the International Chemistry Olympiad (IChO) as well as several chemistry competitions for middle school students. Founded in 1992, we now have more than 400 members and unit people from of all ages, from universities and industry.
Our goal is to support the national Chemistry Olympiad, as well as promote interest in chemistry via an expanding variety of activities for middle and high school students. Throughout the year we arrange more than 10 different seminars and organize ca. 20 national internships as well as a few abroad for talented students of ages 13 to 19. We give out book vouchers and travel scholarships and support interested students in many other ways.
