Minnesota Agriculture in the Classroom (MAITC) is accepting grant applications for its 2015 Ag Literacy Grant Program. Up to $400 of special project grant funding is available to K-12 practicing teachers wishing to bring agriculture to life in the classroom, garden or on a field trip. MAITC has $10,000 planned for 2015 grants.
The goal is to provide a financial incentive for teachers to effectively integrate agricultural content into core academic subjects like science, social studies or language arts. The application deadline is Saturday, January 10.
MAITC is looking to support grant applications for field trips to farms or agriculture processing sites, school gardens, and other projects aimed at educating youth about agriculture.
To access the online grant application, visit www.mda.state.mn.us/maitc . All 2015 calendar year grants will be funded based on applications received by the January 10 deadline.
MAITC is a public/private partnership between the Minnesota Department of Agriculture and the MAITC Foundation. The program provides a variety of K-12 educational materials and professional development opportunities to Minnesota’s education community.
