Florida small farmers who cannot attend the conference due to financial hardship have the opportunity to apply for a registration scholarship. Up to a $150 value, the scholarship covers the cost of a full conference registration. Other costs associated with the conference such as travel, lodging, and incidentals are not covered under the registration scholarship and will be the responsibility of the individual.
Applications will be reviewed in the order received by a committee composed of small farm producers and university extension faculty. Priority will be given to first time conference attendees. Past winners are not eligible and all scholarship recipients must be 18 years of age or older. Scholarship recipients name and Florida County will be posted on the conference website.
The number of scholarship that can be awarded will depend on the total amount of donations received for this purpose.
Florida small farmers applying should complete the application and send by June 1 for consideration.
Applicants will be notified by June 23. Awardees will be required to complete a registration within one week of notification to confirm scholarship acceptance (by June 30).
