Educational Grants

Beginning in 2005, The Dudley Smith Initiative has offered grants to fund innovative projects that create knowledge about agriculture and its impact on the community.

Educators are encouraged to creatively link what they teach to the agriculture and community system. Applicants are enabled to take advantage of the physical resources of the Dudley Smith Farm and the knowledge resources from the ongoing research under the Dudley Smith Initiative to provide their students with a deeper understanding of the agriculture and community system. In doing this, the Dudley Smith Initiative itself benefits from the interaction and feedback from the teachers and students.
