COOPERATIVE EDUCATION

INVESTING IN THE FUTURE OF THE COOPERATIVE SYSTEM

Cooperative Education grants invest in programs that develop and enhance understanding of the agricultural cooperative business model through education, professional development and practical experience.

Strong emphasis is placed on projects that teach middle, high school and college students about cooperative principles using innovative concepts and learning methodologies.

More than 20 grants were awarded in early 2018. Check back in late 2018 for a full list of guidelines and funding priorities for the next application cycle.
