Grants & Grant Programs

Florida Agriculture in the Classroom distributes Volunteer Grants in the spring and Teacher and School Garden 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. For more information about the different grants please click the link below the grant you would like to apply for. 

*For all grant final reports we need photo release forms for all students whose face we can see in the picture. The form they have on file at school works for us. If there is not one at school we can send you a form. Click here for an example of a simple photo release form. Or click here for a general photo release.
