SAE Grant Applications Due Nov. 15
Applications are due Nov. 15, 2017, for the Wisconsin FFA Foundation’s Supervised Agricultural Experience (SAE) Grant Program. The application can be found at www.wisconsinffa.org and must be postmarked by Nov. 15 and mailed to the Wisconsin FFA Foundation office.
The Foundation’s SAE Grants are available to Wisconsin FFA members in five categories this year: dairy, grain production, livestock, organic agriculture and start-up. Grain production is a new category, thanks to support from Foundation donors. Applicants must be a current FFA member in grades 7 through 11 during the current, 2017-18 school year.
Through this grant program, Wisconsin FFA members receive financial support for their designated SAE project, anything from starting a new business to increasing a livestock herd size. A student’s SAE is one segment of the state’s triad agricultural education program, which includes classroom and FFA involvement. The SAE program also is known for its mentorship of students by agricultural industry leaders.
