America's Farmers: Grow Rural Education

Farmers Grow Rural Education, sponsored by the Monsanto Fund, helps farmers positively impact their communities by supporting local school districts. The program gives farmers the opportunity to nominate a rural public school district in their community to compete for merit-based grants of either $10,000 or $25,000 to enhance math and/or science education. In 2015, the program will be available in 1,324 counties across 40 states, and grants totaling $2.3 million will be awarded.

Since 2011, over $7 million has been awarded to school districts through this program. For more information on this program, please visit
