SARE Fellows Application Now Available

SARE Fellows Application Now Available 

NACAA Members,
In 2020, the responsibility and selection process of the SARE Fellows Award was assumed directly by SARE.  Below is the new process for applying for the award.  The information submitted will be going directly to SARE not NACAA.  NACAA did discover there was an incorrect link for the 2020 award process still showing on the NACAA website.  If you did submit on that incorrect link (prior to yesterday) - within the NACAA website, you will need to re-submit on SARE's official application below.


Applications are now being accepted for the SARE Fellows program . SARE Fellows is a unique professional development opportunity for agricultural educators to:

  1. Forge new connections with colleagues from other parts of the nation
  2. Evaluate agriculture within a social, economic and environmental systems framework
  3. Visit innovative producers using practices that sustain agriculture for future generations
  4. Improve agriculture education programs for local stakeholders

Applications must be submitted by May 1, 2020. Apply online now .

SARE Fellows participate in a series of sustainable farming and ranching systems trainings, with a focus on basic sustainable production strategies and how they work in the field. In this two-year program, Fellows are introduced to sustainable farming and ranching practices under a range of conditions and network with other agents to gain practical knowledge to improve Extension programs back home. Learn more about the SARE Fellows program and previous participants’ experiences .

  • Extension professionals working with farmers and ranchers from 1862, 1890, 1994 institutions.
  • Must have an interest in learning about sustainable agriculture across the United States and in applying what you learn with your clientele.

Application Process
Applications must be submitted by May 1, 2020. Apply online now .

Support provided by the Sustainable Agriculture Research and Education (SARE) program with funding from the National Institute of Food and Agriculture, U.S. Department of Agriculture . The availability of this program will be dependent upon the consent of USDA SARE and the availability of funds.
