Grow Rural Education Supporting Public Schools | America's Farmers

empower kids with powerful experiences

Jobs in STEM are only becoming more valued, and that gives educators and their allies a pretty clear game plan: Get kids excited about science, technology, engineering and math. These skills can lead to a successful career in agriculture and other industries.

The Grow Rural Education program allows eligible farmers to nominate their local public school district for grants to help enhance STEM education. Once nominated, school districts submit applications to compete for $10,000 or $25,000 grants to help fund projects that enhance their STEM curriculum. These grants are helping to improve test scores, but better yet, they're getting kids to think bigger about their tomorrow.
