Each year, the Dane County Extension Committee awards scholarships to high school graduates and continuing college students who live in Dane County and intend to pursue a career in agriculture or a related field, exhibit a strong sense of community volunteerism and service, maintain high grades, and participate in 4-H or FFA.

The scholarships are funded from the John Lyle Memorial Trust Fund.

Interested applicants can visit the Dane County Extension website https://dane.extension.wisc.edu/ for more information and to access the application. Application information will also be available from Dane County high school agriculture instructors and guidance counselors and the UW Financial Aid Office.

To be considered for the 2019-2020 academic year, completed applications and all related documentation must be received in the Dane County Extension Office or postmarked by 4:30 p.m. on May 15.

For questions, contact Sandy Jensen, 608-224-3707 or jensen.sandy@countyofdane.com.
