Bayer CropScience is partnering with the National FFA to inspire interest in agriculture and apiculture professions among America’s youth.
The new grant program will help FFA members develop their unique talents and explore science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) careers with a focus on finding solutions that will help honey bees thrive. “I have a real passion for the FFA and I love to support them,” said Dr. Becky Langer, manager of Bayer‘s Bee Care Program. “So, we’re sponsoring $50,000 that can go towards grants – whether individual, chapter, or environmental … these grants will provide funds to develop projects over 2015 and help us arrive at some great solutions for pollinator health.”
