AgStar Offers Grants To Support Ag Education In High Schools

$30,000 available to schools for purchasing ag equipment for classrooms.

The AgStar Fund for Rural America, a corporate giving program of AgStar Financial Services, is proud to once again offer grants to support the purchase of equipment for agriculture classrooms. A total of $30,000 is available to schools in our 69 county service area in Minnesota and northwest Wisconsin.

$30,000 available to schools for purchasing ag equipment for classrooms.

Schools can receive up to $2,500 to fund equipment for high school agriculture education programs. "Offering this grant program to ag classrooms is important to AgStar because we believe that education is the first step to helping students realize the vitality of agriculture in the world," said John Monson, Chair of the Fund for Rural America. "Schools are especially strapped for funding in this area and we at AgStar want to help in every way possible to make sure the next generation is being educated about a topic so close to our hearts."

Applications considered for funding must be submitted online at  Applications are accepted during the month of April 2012. High school agriculture programs located in one of the 69 counties within AgStar's local service area are eligible to apply if they have not received a grant from AgStar in the past two years.

Since its inception in 2001, the AgStar Fund has donated more than $3 million to organizations working to improve the future of rural America. Support must align with the Fund's mission of "enhancing life in agriculture and rural America."
