Youth Educator Grants available for sustainable ag projects

Advertisement

The 2013 North Central Region - Sustainable Agriculture Research and Education Program Youth Educator Grant Call for Proposals is now available.

Youth Educator Grant projects provide opportunities for youth in the North Central Region to learn more about sustainable agriculture (farming and ranching that is ecologically sound, profitable, and socially responsible). Educators use the grants to encourage young people and their parents to try sustainable practices and see sustainable agriculture as a viable career option. Projects should helpyouth discover that sustainable farming and ranching is profitable; good for families, communities, and their quality of life; and good for the environment long term. Grants are awarded at a $2,000 maximum, and a total of approximately $20,000 is available for this program. Grant recipients have 25 months to complete projects.

Interested applicants can find the call for proposals online as well as useful information for completing a proposal at www.northcentralsare.org/Grants/Our-Grant-Programs/Youth-Educator-Grant-Program. You can find more information about sustainable agriculture at www.sare.org or take a free National Continuing Education Program online course about the basic concepts at www.sare.org/Learning-Center/Courses-and-Curricula. Note that NCR-SARE's Youth Grant Program was discontinued in March 2012.

Proposals are due by 4:30 p.m., Nov. 15 at the NCR-SARE office in Saint Paul, Minn.

Potential applicants with questions can contact Joan Benjamin, Associate Regional Coordinator and Farmer Rancher Grant Program Coordinator, at jbenjami@umn.edu or 573-681-5545 or 800-529-1342. A hard copy or an emailed copy of the call for proposals is also available by contacting Joan Benjamin. We make revisions to our calls for proposals each year, which means it is crucial to use the most recent call for proposals.

Each state in SARE's North Central Region has one or more State Sustainable Agriculture Coordinators who can provide information and assistance to potential grant applicants. Interested applicants can find their State Sustainable Agriculture Coordinator online at www.northcentralsare.org/State-Programs.
