Excellence in Extension provides competitive grants that are open to all ISU Extension and Outreach employees - campus, field, and county. 

The grants are used

  • to develop creative and innovative programs,
  • to provide scholarships for graduate work,
  • and to support professional growth for groups and individuals.

Ever since it began in 1989, Excellence in Extension has been funded solely by contributions from extension professionals. When you contribute to Excellence in Extension, you are helping to improve and enrich the quality of Iowa State University Extension and Outreach education and you're supporting your extension colleagues.
