Professional Development Grants
The Professional Development program funds outcome-based projects that train Cooperative Extension educators and other agricultural service providers in sustainable techniques and concepts.
Projects must be directed toward increasing the skill and understanding of these service providers and consistent with SARE's larger goal of broad farmer adoption of sustainable practices.
In the overview section you can get a description of the grant, who can apply, what type of projects can be funded, what is expected of grantees, and a timeline for submitting a preproposal and full proposal.
A preproposal is a brief concept document that reviewers use to select which projects will progress to a full proposal.
If your project proceeds to the full grant proposal stage, you can use this section to learn about the application format, deadlines, review process, and other policy guidelines SARE has in place.
