Grants in Place


GROWING TOGETHER BETTER.

SD ‘Grants in Place’ Program Connects Rural Teachers and Students to Their Community.

The Grants in Place program in South Dakota is a cooperative venture between the Rural Schools Collaborative and Dakota Resources. Grants in Place is a modest grant program that encourages rural school district teachers to engage their students in place-based learning, which gives meaning to learning, strengthens the bonds between school and community, and instills pride in the cultures and histories of rural places and small towns.

Our 2018-19 program will fund five rural school district projects in South Dakota with a maximum grant award of $1,000. Applications will be accepted from March 12 to April 23. Updates on last year’s grant recipients can be found on the RSC website. Please contact Mike Knutson if you have questions about Grants in Place.


Application deadline for 2018 has passed. An announcement with this year’s awardees will be made in mid-to-late May.
