Help Keep Rural Schools Growing
March 6, 2015
America’s Farmers Grow Rural Education is back for a fourth year of partnering with farmers to nominate their local public school district to compete for a grant of $10,000 or $25,000 to enhance math and science education.
Farmers who live in an eligible county can nominate public school districts beginning January 1, 2015. Simply fill out an application or call 1-877-267-3332 to make your nomination.
Once a school district has received an invitation code, click here to begin the application process. Schools need to apply by April 15, 2015 to be eligible to compete for a grant.
Spread the word. If you are a school administrator or community member, you can help by spreading the word among the farmers and educators you know. Visit the School Tools and Information page to download helpful materials.
This year, the Monsanto Fund is committed to granting a total of $2.3 million, so don’t miss out on the opportunity to grow rural education right where you live.
