Grants & Grant Programs

Florida Agriculture in the Classroom distributes Volunteer Grants in the spring and Teacher Grants in the fall. Volunteer Grants are available to members of state and county Farm Bureaus, University of Florida/IFAS extension and 4-H agents, master gardeners,  and others who are members of a non-profit association striving to educate students in kindergarten through 12th grade about the importance of Florida agriculture. Teacher Grants are available to general education teachers kindergarten through 12th grade, and agri-science teachers who have agriculture related classroom or schoolyard projects they would like to carry out.

Mini School Garden and Team School Garden Grant Opportunities Now Available for Florida Teachers

Florida Agriculture in the Classroom, Inc. once again is offering this school year an opportunity for individual Florida teachers to apply for $500 school garden mini grants and a team of at least three Florida teachers to apply for $1,000 school garden grants. The easy, online application process will become available Sept. 1, 2013, and will remain available online until all of the funds are  spent. The guidelines for the grant are at the top of the application. Please note teachers from the same school can only apply for one or the other grant, not both. Thank you for your interest in our school garden grant program. Please email faitc@ifas.ufl.edu with any questions.

Applications for only the team school grants has been closed due our quota of grants being fulfilled.  We still have Mini School Garden Grants available. The online application is below. Thank you for your great response.
