Grants of up to $300 to Illinois PreK through 12 teachers for educational projects that aim to promote agricultural literacy in the classroom. Proposed projects should focus on integrating agriculture into a variety of curriculum areas. Funding will be provided for projects including, but not limited to, agricultural teaching units, classroom presentations, and career fairs.

Priority for grants will be given to grants that contain materials for use over multiple school years.

In the past, grant reviewers have looked more favorably upon grants with a direct agriculture connection to agriculture. Reviewers also recommend that your grant request is used in whole for a specific project, rather than linked to other potential funding.
