Scholarship Program

The EcoFarm 2019 Scholarship Application has closed. 

EcoFarm is committed to fostering new leadership in ecological agriculture. Our scholarship program strives to make the conference more accessible and inclusive by providing financial assistance to attend EcoFarm Conference. Awards prioritize applicants who are actively farming or ranching and engaged within their communities, are of low-income and belong to ethnic, racial and sexual identity groups that have traditionally been underrepresented at EcoFarm.

 

Application Process

EcoFarm is operating a tiered scholarship system. Applicants choose from a variety of scholarship types, offering a range of benefits and services. Please do not apply for more than one scholarship type.

The deadline to apply for any scholarship is November 15, 2018. Applicants will be notified by email by December 1st, 2018. Please do not register for the conference until you receive notification about your scholarship, as we cannot provide refunds.

Please note: Applications from former scholarship recipients will only be considered 3 years after the year of your award. For example, if you received a scholarship in 2017, please do not apply for a scholarship again until 2020. Applicants who did not receive an award can re-apply at anytime.
