State FFA Foundation Offering SAE Grants
Wisconsin Ag Connection - 10/26/2020

Agriculture education students who are looking for funding to help boost their Supervised Agricultural Experience programs can apply for grants from the Wisconsin FFA Foundation. Director John Hromyak says applications are now available for students to apply for a grant to develop a project that will allow them to learn new skills and develop a successful enterprise.

SAE is the experiential learning aspect of the three-part model of agriculture education. This component is where students apply their knowledge and skills to a hands-on project related to an area of agriculture. It can be entrepreneurial where the student has ownership, or it can be a placement project in which the student works for another entity.

"This year especially, SAE grants will remain a critical support structure for many students looking to begin or expand their SAE projects," John Hromyak said. "Through the generosity of our sponsors, we're able to help bring hands-on agriculture education to our students."

Students can apply for SAE grants in five categories, including dairy, grain production, livestock, organic agriculture and start-up. To be eligible for the grants, students must be a current FFA member between the grades of 7-11 during the current school year.

Applications can be found on the Wisconsin FFA Foundation website and must be postmarked by November 16. For more information, call 608-831-5058 or go to: www.wisconsinaged.org/ffa/scholarships-and-grants
