Science Education Partnership

Funders and Support


A continuing challenge has been to provide ongoing support to participants as our community of teachers grows. In addition to direct financial support from the Hutchinson Center, which also includes the time, enthusiasm, and resources of dozens of Center scientists, SEP has had success in obtaining grant and foundation support from several sources.


A grant from Google Washington, through the Tides Foundation, is supporting our pilot project using iPads.

We acknowledge past funding from the Howard Hughes Medical Institute, Amgen Foundation, Washington Mutual Bank, The Boeing Company Charitable Trust, Wells Fargo Foundation, and the Arthur Vining Davis Foundations.  A start grant from The D.V. and Ida J. McEachern Charitable Trust helped established SEP's kit loan program.

Donations of equipment and materials from the local life sciences research community expand our support of SEP teachers and their students.

We also acknowledge donations of materials to support our Kit Loan Program from:

  • New England Biolabs
  • SurModics/BioFX
  • Promega
  • Fisher
  • Rainin
  • Roche
