State Farm Good Neighbor Student Achievement Grants
"State Farm and Youth Service America are offering grants of up to $1,500 for programs that enhance student achievement through service-learning in K-12 public schools in the United States and the Canadian provinces of Alberta, Ontario, and New Brunswick.
The State Farm Good Neighbor Student Achievement Grant program is designed to engage participating teachers and students in a service and learning program that promotes academic achievement, twenty-first century student outcomes, and stronger communities. The program requires a twelve- to fourteen-week Semester of Service starting on MLK Day (January 21, 2013) and ending on Global Youth Service Day (April 26-28, 2013).
Youth Service America will offer a series of regional trainings in selected geographic locations to be determined by the locations of successful applicants. The regional trainings will introduce grantees to the elements and expectations of the program and present the suite of tools, resources, and support that YSA will provide. Attendance at one regional training is a required element of participation in the grant program. Each grant, valued at $1,500, includes the costs of the grantee's attendance at the regional training as well as up to $1,000 in grant funding for the grantee's program..." Deadline: July 31, 2012.
