Scholarship Application Deadline: Wednesday, July 31st, 2019
Slow Food Austin is offering a scholarship to the Farm and Food Leadership Conference 2019 from August 11 – 13 in San Marcos, Texas. FARFA is partnering with Texas State University’s Small Producers Initiative, which held its own conference the past two years, to offer an event with more workshops, sessions, speakers, and topics than ever.
This unique conference focuses on the policies and regulations affecting our farms and our food as well as the latest developments in sustainable agriculture. Whether you are a farmer, consumer, chef, local foods business owner, or nonprofit advocate, you will find useful information and tools to help support the growth of the local and sustainable food movement.
For additional information about the conference, please visit the Farm & Ranch Freedom Alliance website. The scholarship will cover the ticket for the conference, the Monday Farm-to-Table Dinner, and a travel stipend of $75. For an opportunity to win this scholarship, please submit the application below. The deadline for submission is Wednesday July 31st. The scholarship winner will be contacted directly by Slow Food Austin.
As advocates and members of Slow Food Austin, we strongly encourage, but do not require, our applicants to be members of Slow Food USA. While this is not a requirement to apply to the FARFA conference scholarship, it is an additional way to stay up to date with current events in the community.
