The scholarship fund that was started in response to Larry Sagers final wishes has an update. According to Stephen Sagers they have already raised $15,000 dollars. The money has been going into two separate funds so that people can use part of it now while the overall Endowment fund is still gaining money.
The fund is for future Master Gardeners seeking an education with USU. In order for this to work out it needs to have a minimum of 25,000+ in the principal. After contributions from Larry Sagers, his family, the Thanksgiving Point Master Gardeners and several others we are close to our goal, but we still need some more donors.
Anyone can donate any amount and you can be the next donor! Visit https://www.usu.edu/giving/index.cfm?step=1

Larry wanted this scholarship for people who are in need of learning Master Gardener skills, but may not be able to afford it. The primary recipients of the scholarship will be those who already work in the industry, and those who are willing to teach these concepts to others after taking the classes. USU will select the beneficiaries.
It is a self sustaining scholarship so once the minimum corpus is achieved it will continue to gain interest. Please donate today!
