Help Heartland Community Schools Compete for a grant of up to $25,000
Keep Rural Schools Growing
America’s Farmers Grow Rural Education, sponsored by the Monsanto Fund, gives rural public school districts the opportunity to compete for a grant of up to $25,000 to help fund science and math programs. Eligible farmers can nominate local public school districts for a grant. Please ask all of the local farmers you know to nominate our school today.
Farmers in 1,289 counties across 39 states have the opportunity to keep rural schools growing by nominating their local public school district to apply for the grant. In 2014, the Monsanto Fund will award $2.3 million to rural school districts.
Grant applications will be judged based on merit, need and community support. The more farmers we have nominate our school district, the more it demonstrates community support and strengthens our application.
