College of Science - Chem & Biochem - Friedrich J, and Hildergard A. Weck Scholarship Awards

The Weck Family has had a long and meaningful relationship with the Chemistry and Biochemistry Department at Cal Poly Pomona. The roots of this relationship began in the 1970s when the Weck’s began employing chemistry students from Cal Poly to work in their analytical laboratory located in the City of Industry. Friedrich and Hildegard Weck were well known for their sensitivity and caring attitude toward student employees. This relationship became more formalized in the early 1980s when Dr. Ernie Simpson began placing students with Weck Laboratories through the Co-Op Program.
