If you are interested in applying for a SARE scholarship, fill out the application form at http://www.uwex.edu/ces/sustag/scholarships/ and send it to firstname.lastname@example.org . Please note these scholarships are only for agricultural educators. By all means let farmers know about these excellent conferences and workshops, but our SARE funding only allows us to provide scholarships to educators.
