Applications are now being accepted for the Monsanto Hawaiʻi Science Education Fund for public schools serving students at the intermediate, high school and college grade levels on Oʻahu, Maui and Molokaʻi.

Established in 2005, the Fund helps provide Hawaiʻi public schools with programs, tools, supplies and equipment to enhance science education in the schools, and encourage today’s students to consider a future career in the sciences.

To date, the program has awarded more than $230,000 to public schools throughout the state. Funds have been used for science and technology programs, lab tools, classroom supplies, science equipment and more.

Applications are accepted and reviewed twice a year. The next deadline is Feb. 6, 2017. Applications can be downloaded online at or by contacting any one of Monsanto’s farm stations on Oʻahu (808) 685-8371, Maui (808) 891-8830 or Molokaʻi (808) 553-5070.

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.
