Farmers can nominate schools for grant


For the third consecutive year, America’s Farmers Grow Rural Education, sponsored by the Monsanto Fund, will give eligible farmers across the country the opportunity to enhance math and science programs in their communities.

Now until April 6, 2014, farmers can nominate a local public school district to compete for a merit-based grant of up to $25,000. Administrators of nominated school districts may then submit grant applications through April 21. This year, the number of eligible counties has expanded to 1,289 across 39 states.
