Farm Credit East Accepting Scholarship Applications to Support Agricultural Educators

September 7, 2021 

Farm Credit East is accepting applications from Northeast agricultural educators to support their attendance at institutes offered by the Curriculum for Agricultural Science Education (CASE). Scholarships will cover up to $1,000. The application deadline is September 30.

CASE, a project of the National Council for Agricultural Education, managed by the National Association of Agricultural Educators, has developed high school courses that integrate science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) concepts with hands-on, inquiry-based learning. The institutes provide professional development for educators to offer this coursework in high school classrooms. CASE also offers an agricultural business curriculum developed with support from Farm Credit East.

The schedule for 2022 CASE institutes will be available in October, with registration opening in December. Visit case4learning.org to learn more. Since 2009, CASE has certified 3,091 teachers from 46 states and the Virgin Islands, including 198 teachers from the Northeast states Farm Credit East serves.

To be eligible for a Farm Credit East CASE scholarship, educators must teach in a school district within Farm Credit East’s seven state territory and must currently teach, or plan to teach, agriculture or natural resources courses. Scholarships will not exceed $1,000. To learn more or to apply, visit FarmCreditEast.com/AgEducator. The deadline to apply is September 30, 2021.
