American Grassfed Association, Quivira Coalition, and Holistic Management International are pleased to announce a call for applications for the 2020 REGENERATE HERD Fellowship, which provides scholarships for beginning agrarians, land stewards, and students in related fields to attend the virtual 2020 REGENERATE Conference from October 26-November 20!
What Is The HERD Fellowship
The REGENERATE partners support young people committed to life at the nexus of tradition and innovation, food and land, economy, and community. We believe good agriculture is rooted in holistic thinking and a lifelong commitment to learning and teaching. Attending the conference provides beginning agrarians, land stewards, and students the opportunity to learn from leaders in the field, build relationships with peers and mentors, find support for their work, and bring fresh perspectives on the future of agriculture.
The 2020 HERD Fellowship will award a minimum of 30 full scholarships (covers conference registration fee) to beginning farmers and ranchers, land stewards, and students in related fields to attend the REGENERATE Conference.
These scholarships will be prioritized to support individuals who come from historically underrepresented or economically low-resource communities and other marginalized identities in agriculture. We specifically encourage the application of Tribal, Latinx, Chicanx, Hispanic, Black/African American, Asian, Pacific Islander, and/or LGBTQ+ beginning ranchers, farmers, land stewards, and college students. However, qualified applicants from any background with a strong application will also be considered.
