Mar 14, 2016

53596_AFGRE_webbanner_1900x510_04022015_2_18_16America’s Farmers Grow Rural Education, sponsored by the Monsanto Fund, partners with farmers to help school districts fund math and science projects to enhance STEM curriculum in across rural America. Between now and April 1, eligible farmers can nominate an eligible public school district in their community.

Nominated school districts can then submit grant applications for a $10,000 or $25,000 math and science grant through April 15, 2016. In the past, the grants have supported a variety of initiatives, including new technology for hands-on learning, greenhouses and outdoor classroom instruction and scientific laboratory advancements. School districts are encouraged to be creative and innovative with their projects to tailor their application to the needs of their students. The only requirement is that the funds help enhance math and science in their district for the 2016-2017 school year.

All school applications are evaluated based on merit, need and community support. The America’s Farmers Grow Rural Education Advisory Council, a group of farmers from across the U.S., will select the winning grant applications, which will be announced in August.
