Monsanto gives Wash U STEM initiative $2.2 million


The Monsanto Fund has given Washington University’s Institute for School Partnership a $2.2 million grant to help better teach students in STEM fields — science, technology, engineering and mathematics.

Washington University will use that money to invest in its MySci program, in which STEM students use interactive learning.

It’s the second grant from Monsanto Fund to MySci, which in 2013 received $2.2 million to help refurbish its facility at 6601 Vernon Ave.
