Monsanto Fund: America’s Farmers Grow Rural Education
America’s Farmers Grow Rural Education, an initiative of the Monsanto Fund, helps farmers positively impact their communities and support local school districts. The program gives farmers in selected counties in 41 states the opportunity to nominate a rural public school district to compete for grants to promote science and math education. Once nominated by a local farmer, school district administrators may submit an application for either a grant of up to $10,000 or a grant of up to $25,000 to support a science or math educational program. The more farmers that nominate a school district, the more it demonstrates community support and strengthens the school district’s application. Farmers must submit nominations by April 1, 2019, and the deadline for schools to apply is April 15, 2019. Visit the program’s website to submit an online nomination.
