Scholarships - 2019
PRIORITY DEADLINE = February 7th, 2019.
RFC will review the first round of scholarship applicants after Feb 7th.
SECONDARY DEADLINE = March 15th, 2019.
RFC will review scholarship applicants again after March 15th.
Rogue Farm Corps recognizes that applicants’ financial situations can strongly influence their ability to participate in RFC’s farmer training programs. We are offering the opportunity for applicants to apply for scholarships for our 2019 programs, in an effort to make our programs more accessible and inclusive.
Please read through the program information and application instructions before applying for scholarship.
Scholarships will be for either half ($875) or all ($1750) of the Internship Program tuition fee, or for the full amount of the Apprenticeship Program tuition fee ($400).
RFC will determine scholarship awards based on these criteria:
Whether the applicant identifies as part of a marginalized group or a group under-represented in agriculture (this is not required to apply but is a factor in our award determination)
The applicant’s commitment to farming (represented in Program Application)
Please complete your Program Application first. Once submitted, click the button below and complete the form in addition to your Program Application.
The priority deadline for this Scholarship Application is February 7th, 2019. After February 7th, Scholarship Applications can still be submitted, but will not be considered in the first priority review round. Only scholarship applicants that have also submitted a Program Application to the RFC Internship or Apprenticeship program will be considered.
A SCHOLARSHIP AWARD IS DEPENDENT UPON CONFIRMING A PLACEMENT AT A HOST FARM. PLACEMENTS ARE DETERMINED BY INDIVIDUAL HOST FARMS AND APPLICANTS-- THEY ARE NOT DECIDED BY ROGUE FARM CORPS. A SCHOLARSHIP AWARD DOES NOT GUARANTEE A PLACEMENT AT A HOST FARM. IF YOU RECEIVE A SCHOLARSHIP AWARD BUT DO NOT SECURE A PLACEMENT AT A HOST FARM BY 4/1/2019, YOUR AWARD WILL BE RE-ASSIGNED TO ANOTHER SCHOLARSHIP APPLICANT.
