Education

Grants offered in eligible communities

Application Period: January 1 - February 28
July 1 - August 31

Bayer Fund supports communities where our employees live and work by investing in programs in eligible communities around the world. We support general educational programs and programs focusing on Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) that offer innovative approaches to teaching or learning and which foster student achievement. We give priority to programs that use evidence-based methodology.

We accept Education applications from invited organizations located in eligible communities during two periods annually. The first period opens January 1 and closes February 28 at 11:59:59pm CT (funding decisions made in May/June). The second period opens July 1 and closes on August 31 at 11:59:59pm CT (funding decisions made in November/December).

Applications to Bayer Fund are by invitation only.

NOTE: Invitation codes for Cycle 2 grants (July-Aug) have been issued in all U.S. communities except for St. Louis, MO. To request an invitation code for St. Louis-based organizations, email your program information and request to grant.questions@monsanto.com. For all other communities, please check this website again in December to view programs available in 2020.
