Amgen Foundation, the philanthropic arm of biomanufacturing company Amgen, recently awarded the first $1 million in grants as part of its rebuilding efforts in Puerto Rico.

Right after Hurricane María, the Amgen Foundation committed $3 million in immediate relief and up to $2 million to support reconstruction initiatives as part of the relief efforts and its commitment to community recovery efforts.

Rebuilding funds will support the reconstruction of educational, recreational and academic facilities, as well as materials and equipment necessary for the following academic institutions: Juana Sánchez Montessori School, Roberto Silva School, and Pedro Bosh School, all located in the municipality of Juncos.

As part of the program, the entity will also provide a grant to the Mayagüez and Humacao campuses of the University of Puerto Rico to rebuild and improve student science laboratories and academic facilities.
