Scholarships to National Small Farm Conference [VA]

A limited number of scholarships for the National Small Farm Conference are available to employees of non-government organizations that directly assist limited-resource, socially-disadvantaged or military veteran producers and ranchers. The program provides financial assistance to up to five employees of one organization. Financial assistance includes a 50% discount on conference registration through August 5, for a total scholarship award of $175 per person.

Priority will be given to those:

  • Whose participation will enhance their work in their own communities, 
  • Who are able to transfer the skills and knowledge acquired at this conference to others who can directly assist limited-resource, socially-disadvantaged or military veteran producers and ranchers, and
  • Whose abstracts or presentation have been selected but who would otherwise be unable to attend

A scholarship review committee will review and score each application. Applicants will be directly notified of the status of their scholarship request usually within two weeks of submission. Please know though every attempt will be made to assist as many qualified scholarship applicants as possible, we regret there are only a limited number of scholarships available, and each qualified applicant will be awarded a scholarship on a first-come, first-served basis.
