CASEAEM, in partnership with the Equipment Dealers Association (EDA), is sponsoring the 2021 National Association of Agriculture Educators (NAEE) CASE Institute Scholarship for agriculture educators. CASE is an acronym for “curriculum for agricultural science education.”

Applications for 2021 scholarships are now being accepted. The deadline is Feb. 28, 2021. Each partial scholarship is valued at $2,000, and all applicants will be notified of the results via email in March of this year.

“AEM is once again very proud to be a part of a program that works diligently to give back to those in agriculture educator positions,” said AEM Director of Workforce Development Julie Davis. “The CASE Institute scholarships assist educators in their efforts to take their programs to the next level and help train and develop the ag industry’s workforce of tomorrow.”

To be eligible, an applicant must be:

  • A current NAEE member
  • A certified agriculture teacher who will be employed or is seeking employment for all 2021 in a program with a CASE course
  • Registered for a CASE institute by April 15, 2021

“Over the past three years, the scholarships AEM has helped provide have allowed teachers to reach more than 2,000 students with their ag science curriculums and excite them about a future in the industry,” said Davis.

AEM member company leaders should forward this information to their local high school principals to encourage participation in the scholarship and program.  On behalf of the equipment manufacturing industry, AEM works to support training and programs that encourage individuals to pursue careers in the industries we serve.
