Grants In Place Rural South Dakota Schools

GROWING TOGETHER BETTER.

SD ‘Grants in Place’ Program Connects Students to Community.

Dakota Resources is proud to sponsor opportunities for SD educators to participate in the Grants in Place program from The Rural Schools Collaborative. Grants in Place will fund four to six projects in South Dakota for the 2017-18 school year. While the Grants in Place program is open to teachers from across the country, the South Dakota Grants in Place program is only open to South Dakota rural teachers.

In addition to utilizing place-based learning principles, South Dakota projects should address a community issue, thus engaging students in making their community a better place. With this in mind, educators are encouraged to work with local community and economic development groups. This might mean inviting community leaders to be part of the learning project or it might mean involving students in existing projects that community leaders are addressing.

The deadline for application to this innovative program is May 5, 2017.

Application Instructions:

The application process is intended to be short and simple. In addition to basic contact and budget information, the applicant is asked to write a short narrative of the project. This narrative should describe the project, what students will learn, and how the project will make the community a better place.

Please contact us if you have any questions!
