Monsanto Accepting Science Education Grant Applications
The application deadline is Feb. 8 for applications for the Monsanto Hawai‘i Science Education Fund, which is open to public schools serving students at the intermediate, high school and college grade levels on O‘ahu, Maui and Moloka‘i.
Established in 2005, the fund helps provide the state’s public schools with programs, tools, supplies and equipment to enhance science education, and encourage students to consider a career in the sciences.
To date, the program has awarded more than $200,000 to public schools throughout the state.
Applications are accepted and reviewed twice a year. Because the normal application deadline falls on a Saturday this year, the fund will accept applications received in its office by Monday, Feb. 8.
Applications can be downloaded online or by contacting one of Monsanto’s farm stations on Maui at (808) 891-8830, O‘ahu at (808) 685-8371 or Moloka‘i at (808) 553-5070.
Include all requested documentation. Incomplete or partial submissions will not be eligible.
The Monsanto Fund, the philanthropic arm of the Monsanto Company, is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to strengthening the farm communities where farmers and Monsanto Company employees live and work.
