Growing your own produce is not only a healthy, fulfilling experience but also a great way to live sustainably.
By growing your own fruits and vegetables, you can avoid adding pesticides and chemicals to the environment and you can also reduce your carbon footprint by cutting out the need for long-distance transportation of your produce.
This scholarship seeks to support people who grow their own produce in a sustainable way to help the environment.
Any student or person with student debt who is actively growing their own produce or is part of a co-op or community that grows its own produce may apply for this scholarship.
To apply, tell us about difficulties and successes you’ve experienced while growing your own produce. You may also upload images of your farm, garden, or produce.
Tell us about the struggles you face while maintaining your garden or farm as well as the success stories you’ve experienced.
The application deadline is Jan 31, 2022. Winners will be announced on Mar 31, 2022.
The scholarship award is $500 per winner.
The winner will be publicly announced on Mar 31, 2022. Prior to the announcement date, we may contact finalists with additional questions about their application. We will work with donors to review all applications according to the scholarship criteria. Winners will be chosen based on the merit of their application.
Award checks will be sent to the financial aid office of the winner's academic institution or future academic institution in their name to be applied to their tuition, and in the name of their institution (depending on the school's requirements). If the award is for a qualified educational non-tuition expense, we will work with the winner directly to distribute the award and make sure it goes towards qualified expenses.
Before we award the scholarship, the winner will be required to confirm their academic enrollment status. Depending on the circumstances, verification of Student ID and/or their most recent transcript will be required.
