NESAWG’s annual It Takes a Region Conference brings together farm and food practitioners across the 12-state Northeast region to learn, debate, collaborate, and innovate solutions to critical food systems issues. For more information, visit the conference website.
For the 2015 It Takes a Region Conference they are offering two types of scholarships:
- Full scholarships cover all registration fees and two nights lodging – the total value of this scholarship is $345. Lodging will be a shared room, double occupancy.
- Partial scholarships cover $120 of the conference registration fee. Partial scholarship recipients pay $80 to attend. (Note: this scholarship does not cover lodging.)
Scholarships are intended to support attendance and create a pathway to engage in the NESAWG network for those in need of financial assistance. In reviewing requests, our selection priorities include:
- Financial Need
- People of Color diversity
- Geographic diversity within the Northeast
- Community leaders and emerging leaders
- Professional diversity
