State Farm Good Neighbor Student Achievement Grants - $1,500

 July 31, 2012
State Farm™ is proud to team up with YSA (Youth Service America) to offer grants of up to $1,500 for programs enhancing student achievement through service-learning in K-12 public schools in all fifty US states, the District of Columbia, and in the Canadian provinces of Alberta, Ontario and New Brunswick.
Each grant engages participating teachers and students in a service and learning program that promotes academic achievement, 21st Century student outcomes, and stronger communities. The State Farm Good Neighbor Student Achievement Grant requires a 12-to-14 week Semester of Service™ starting on MLK Day of Service (January 212013) and ending on Global Youth Service Day, (April 26-28, 2013).
YSA will offer a series of regional trainings in selected geographic locations, to be  determined by the locations of successful applicants.  Each regional training will introduce grantees to the elements and expectations of the program, presenting the suite of tools, resources, and support that YSA will provide.  Attendance at one regional training is a required element of participation in the State Farm Good Neighbor Student Achievement Grant program. This grant, valued at $1,500, includes the costs of your attendance at the regional training as well as up to $1,000 in grant funding for your program.
