DuPont Pioneer and the National Association of Agricultural Educators (NAAE) has awarded $200,000 in grants to provide agriscience educators with training and classroom resources that will better prepare students for careers in agriculture and food.
DuPont Pioneer is working closely with NAAE to award grants to teachers who are implementing Curriculum for Agricultural Science Education (CASE) but need additional funding.
CASE is a multiyear approach to agriscience education. The collaboration with DuPont Pioneer and CASE is a special project of the National FFA Foundation. The DuPont Pioneer grants will help with teacher training, equipment and materials, and end-of-course assessments.
