Get a grant to help offset bus expense!

We offer field trip grants of up to $200 to K-12 classrooms within DeKalb County. The grants are intended to fund transportation for agricultural field trips designed to support food and farm-related units of study. The number of grants awarded each year will depend on availability of funds.

To apply, please complete the grant application. Funding will be granted on a first-come, first-served basis to teachers submitting satisfactory applications. Teachers selected for funding will be notified as soon as possible. A completed final report will be due to the DeKalb County Farm Bureau within three weeks after culmination of the unit. Checks will be issued upon receipt of the final report.

Grant Criteria

  1. The field trip location must be a working farm or to an agribusiness (such as an implement dealer).
  2. Students must be learning about modern farm and agricultural practices. (Historical farm practices may be addressed in comparison to practices of the current day.)

The field trip must be a component of a unit of study that focuses on or significantly incorporates agriculture concepts.
