America’s Farmers Grow Rural Education, sponsored by the Monsanto Fund, offers farmers the chance to nominate a local public school district, which can then compete for a grant of up to $25,000 to enhance math and/or science education. More than 1,150 nominated school districts submitted applications. The Monsanto Fund will invest $2.3 million through America’s Farmers Grow Rural Education grants this year.
“The opportunity that America’s Farmer Grow Rural Education grant provides to Fayette Local Schools allows us to deliver hands-on educational opportunities to our students,” said Erik Belcher, Fayette Local School Superintendent. “Students will also be engaged in service learning projects that will benefit the community, as well as enhance our curriculum. This grant will directly benefit our school and community for years to come.”
