Beginning Farmer Scholarships for New York Organic Farming Conference

The Northeast Organic Farming Association of New York is offering 75 full scholarships to beginning farmers who are interested in attending the 2011 NOFA-NY Winter Conference: Diggin’ Diversity!

Beginning Farmer Scholarships are awarded to beginning farmers who require financial assistance to pay for registration costs. These scholarships will cover the full cost of registration ($225 for NOFA-NY members, $300 for nonmembers), which includes breakfasts and lunches on all three days. If awarded a scholarship, applicants agree to contribute two hours of volunteer service at the winter conference as well as complete a post-conference evaluation.

The conference will be held at the Saratoga Hilton & City Center in Saratoga Springs Jan. 21-23.

Applications for scholarships, a full schedule of events, and further information are available online at
