Scholarship Program

Eligibility

We are offering a limited number of partial scholarships for $50–$900 to applicants based on need, interest, and available funds. We will review applications and award scholarships on a first-come, first-served basis with consideration to the following:

  • Financial need.
  • The type of work the applicant plans to do upon their return from the trip.
  • Applicant’s level of community involvement and engagement in work related to sustainable agriculture in Southern Appalachia.
  • We strongly encourage young food activists, farmers, and people of color to apply.

 

Finding Other Funding Opportunities

We ask that you exhaust all other funding opportunities before applying as our scholarship pool is limited. We want to prioritize those who would not be able to attend without a scholarship. If you are part of an academic program or profession related to agriculture, we are more than happy to provide letters of request for funding help or academic credit from your business or institution. We have had both agricultural professionals and academics participate in this trip with funding through their institutions.
