As Western SARE approached its 20th anniversary funding noteworthy sustainable agriculture research and outreach, the Administrative Council explored ideas to train the next generation of scientists and ag professionals. To help “grow” a well-trained new generation, the Administrative Council initiated the Graduate  Student Grants in Sustainable Agriculture program in 2005 with an initial allocation of $100,000. That year, 10 projects were funded out of 25 submitted proposals. Since then, 78 projects have been funded for a total of $1,470,666.

Overall the grants program is a solid investment in the future of sustainable agriculture in the West and U.S. This publication highlights six high quality graduate student projects.
