Presentations will cover a variety of topics ranging from organic farming for climate change, crop cultivars developed for organic systems, and organic pest and weed management. Farmers, ranchers, extension staff, educators, agricultural  professionals, and others interested in organic agriculture are invited to attend. For questions about the forum, please contact grants@ofrf.org

All applications must include the following: name, position, statement of interest and need of scholarship, amount requested and budget. Scholarships will be awarded based on the need and merit of the applicant. The scholarship funds may be applied toward forum registration, travel, and one night of lodging. To receive reimbursement, scholarship recipients will be required to submit receipts and a brief blog about their experience. These scholarships have been made available through the generous support of Ceres Trust.
