Farmer Veteran Scholarship Application

North Carolina Soil & Water Conservation Districts. Yours for Life

All scholarships have currently been awarded. Fill out the form below to be considered for scholarships if they become available.

Please consider applying to volunteer if paying for the conference is a barrier.

Thanks so much for your interest in attending the 25th Annual OGS Spring Conference! We’re excited to be offering scholarships for Farmer Veterans this year.

  • Scholarships are limited, intended for FARMER VETERANS specifically, and will be distributed on a first-come, first-serve basis.
  • You will have the opportunity to indicate which day(s) you’d like to attend the conference on the form. The scholarship is good for a Full-Weekend pass, or a Saturday/Sunday ONLY pass.
  • Scholarship recipients will be required to check-in with OGS Staff during the weekend of the conference.
  • We will respond to applications with scholarship decisions within one week of the submission of the application.
  • These scholarships are made possible by the sponsorship of Buncombe County Soil & Water Conservation District. Thank you!
