The late Doctors Mary Paul and Henry Paul had demonstrated their interest in science education over many years. They had helped and encouraged highly motivated students interested in science at the high school in their hometown of Norwich, New York. They also had secured or donated special equipment to the Norwich High School. In addition, the Drs. Paul had served as technical advisors to teachers and other educators outside of Norwich. It was, therefore, appropriate that scholarships were established honoring the memory of these outstanding scientists and perpetuating their interest in science education.

As members of the American Chemical Society, the Pauls had a shared interest with the local Norwich Section for promoting science education. The Norwich Section originally established and administered their scholarship fund. The Binghamton Section continues the mission of the former Norwich Section by assuming the responsibility for the Dr. Mary Paul and Dr. Henry Paul Memorial Scholarships.
