Dodge County FB Student Project Grant

What is the Student Project Grant?

Dodge County Farm Bureau will provide two (2) grants of up to $500 each year to Dodge County FFA & 4-H students. The purpose of the grant is to provide funds for students to begin or expand their 4-H or FFA projects. There is no limit to the scale of the project – students are awarded money based on their budget and goals for the project. Their personal statement, financial need, advisor statement and project summary are also taken into consideration. There may be a personal interview. If selected, the student must share how they have used the grant towards growing or starting their project at the county’s annual meeting in the fall.

Grants will be awarded every year in the Spring. Applications are due December 1, 2023.
