Southern SAWG: Veteran Scholarships Available
Limited scholarships are available for military veterans who would like to attend Southern Sustainable Agriculture Working Group’s (SAWG) annual Practical Tools and Solutions for Sustaining Family Farms Conference. The popular conference, which is being held January 27 through January 30 in Lexington, Kentucky, focuses on practical tools and solutions to build the necessary bridges between farmers, marketers, ag professionals, and local-food system advocates. The University of Arkansas and the National Center for Appropriate Technology (NCAT) are partnering to offer the veteran scholarships, which cover general registration for the conference.

The deadline to apply for the scholarships is December 11. The application is available online at http://www.ncat.org/armed-to-farm-events/. Applicants will be notified no later than December 18 about the status of their scholarship application.
