Travel Scholarships

Scholarships are available for agricultural professionals wishing to attend conferences to further their knowledge of sustainable agriculture practices. Agricultural professionals include Extension educators, Natural Resource Conservation Service staff, state and federal agency personnel, high school and community college instructors, and educators in the profit and not-for-profit sectors serving the food and fiber system. That knowledge should be applied to existing and new local programming upon completion of the event.

Reimbursable expenses include lodging, registration, meals, airfare and mileage. Those chosen for travel scholarships will be expected to complete a survey immediately after the conference/event to receive their reimbursement. They will also be expected to complete a second survey six to twelve months after the event on how the information was used in their work and the number of individuals with whom the information was shared.
