DuPont Pioneer is working closely with the National Association of Agricultural Educators to award grants to teachers who are implementing Curriculum for Agricultural Science Education but may lack sufficient resources.
Grants of $2,500 to $5,000 are available to help train teachers and supply equipment and resources to prepare students for careers in agriculture and food.
Applications for CASE grants will be accepted through October 30, 2014.
The DuPont Pioneer grants will be available to help in three areas teachers have identified as cost barriers to implementing the program in their schools: teacher training, equipment and materials, and end-of-course assessments.
CASE is a multiyear approach to agriscience education with rigorous educator training requirements and hands-on, inquiry-focused learning activities.
The collaboration between DuPont Pioneer and CASE is a special project of the National FFA Foundation. This is the third year of involvement for DuPont Pioneer.
