America’s Farmers Grow Rural Education

For the second year in a row, the Monsanto Fund is gearing-up to invest $2.3 million to strengthen math and science education in rural communities through America’s Farmers Grow Rural Educationruraleducation.

Now until April 15, 2013, farmers can nominate their favorite local public school district. Administrators of nominated school districts can then submit grant applications through April 30, 2013 to enhance their math and/or science programs.

Farmers in 1,271 counties across 39 states have the opportunity to grow the next generation by nominating a rural, public school district to apply for a grant of up to $25,000.

Grants will be awarded based on merit, need and community support.

The more farmers who nominate a school district, the more it demonstrates community support and strengthens the school district’s application.
