Agilent Technologies Foundation: Grants for Science Education

OVERVIEW: The Agilent Technologies Foundation focuses its grantmaking on biosciences and pre-university science programs.

IP TAKE: This funder awards grants to communities around the world in which it has a major employee or business presence.

PROFILE: The Agilent Technologies Foundation was founded in 1999 and is a subsidiary of Hewlett-Packard. The foundation’s grantmaking prioritizes education, live sciences development and advancing children’s education. The foundation also “[s]upports a range of pre-university level science education programs aimed at helping students develop the critical thinking skills essential for tomorrow’s jobs.”

Agilent’s science education grants support programs encouraging “[h]ands-on, inquiry-based science.” Grants typically range from $10,000 to $250,000; however, this funder does not award a large number of grants each year. Past science education grantees include the Youth Science Institute, which received funding to support a hands-on science education program; and the Association of Women in Science, which received funding for its Leadership in STEM program.

The Agilent Foundation does not accept unsolicited grant applications or requests for funding.
