America's Farmers accepting applications for grants to enhance science and math education

America's Farmers Grow Rural Education is accepting applications from public schools to compete for grants of $10,000 or $25,000 to enhance math and science education. The grants, which were created in 2011, were designed "to help farmers positively impact their communities and support local school district," says America's Farmers. This year the Monsanto Fund is awarding a total of $2.3 million in grants.

Farmers who live in an eligible county can nominate their local school district through April 1. After a school district receives its first nomination, the Monsanto Fund will notify them to design a project that enhances math and/or science education in their district. School districts are then responsible for submitting grant applications by April 15. Winners will be announced in August. Schools can be nominated by calling 1-877-267-3332 or by clicking here.
