Scholarships to attend the SARE conference

The North Central SARE Administrative Council wants to have diverse voices and perspectives represented at the Our Farms Our Future Conference, as we gather to envision the future of sustainable agriculture. A limited number of scholarships are available for qualified applicants. Scholarships will be awarded to encourage attendance by young farmers and ranchers, future researchers (graduate students), and long-time sustainable agricultural practitioners from diverse backgrounds. Scholarships will cover registration, travel, and lodging during the conference.

We are especially interested in awarding scholarships to applicants who might not otherwise be able to attend, and to applicants who represent the diverse demography (race, ethnicity, age, sex, veteran status, geography) of our North Central region.

Scholarship applications will open December 4, 2017 and be evaluated weekly, on a rolling basis starting December 11, 2017 until all scholarships are awarded. Go to this link to apply or cut and paste the address into your browser window:
