Application Process

We award as many scholarships as funds allow, giving priority to farmers who have not yet attended the conference. Previous scholarship recipients are not eligible.

The scholarship application period for the 2020 MOSES Conference is now closed. All applications will be considered equally, not based on the date received.

Scholarship applicants will be notified by Dec. 31, 2020—don’t register for the conference until you hear back from us or you forfeit your potential scholarship. If you don’t receive a scholarship, you can still register for the conference before Early Bird pricing ends. If you are awarded a scholarship, you must formally accept your award by registering for the conference using the link provided in your award letter.
