Scholarships for Organic Intensives 2022
Our vision is a vibrant and diverse community working together for healthy food that is available to everyone and for agricultural practices that support the long-term viability of our ecosystem. To make this vision a reality, MOFFA endeavors to make resources, connections and experiences available to all who seek them. Each year we have scholarships available for our Organic Intensives. The first is made available by funding from SARE, the Sustainable Agriculture Research and Education Program. This full scholarship is available to persons who are teaching others about sustainable agriculture in some capacity. This can be anything from MSU Extension personnel to elementary school teachers to farmers who are teaching interns on the farm, and just about anything in between.
Our second type of scholarship is made possible thanks to generous donations from the Maynard Kaufman Estate and Dr. George and Anne Bird and is available to anyone for whom the full cost of registration represents a barrier. These scholarships ask that you contribute $25 toward the registration fee and the scholarship will cover the rest. Additionally, a full scholarship is also available if this reduced fee presents a difficulty.
