Larry Sagers Master Gardener Scholarship
  • Larry Sagers was a long-time Extension professor at USU and provided leadership for Utah's Master Gardener program. He was also a horticulture specialist who gave much of his time and energy to educating the public and helping people become more self-sustaining through gardening and horticulture education.

     

    The Larry Sagers Scholarship is based on an endowment of funds donated to the University by friends and family of Larry Sagers. The purpose of the scholarship is to provide a tuition waiver for the USU Master Gardener program for select individuals who demonstrate financial need and have a commitment of using their newly acquired skills to further the work of USU Extension as a volunteer in their area. Email or fax (435-797-3321) applications to Lana Archibald by Jan. 10.
