Applications are being accepted for the Monsanto Hawaii Science Education Fund.

This grant program is open to public schools serving students at the intermediate, high school and college levels on the islands of Maui, Molokai and Oahu

Established in 2005, the fund helps provide Hawaii public schools with programs, tools, supplies and equipment to enhance science education in the schools and to encourage today’s students to consider a future career in the sciences. To date, the program has awarded more than $145,000 to public schools throughout the state.

Grant applications are accepted and reviewed twice a year. The next application deadline is Feb. 6. Applications can be downloaded online at or by contacting Monsanto’s farm stations on Maui at 891-8830, on Molokai at 553-5070 or on Oahu at (808) 685-8371.
