Request a Grant Writer

College scholarships of $1,000 each to undergraduate and graduate level students from Native American backgrounds who are majoring in an agricultural-related field. Funding is intended to encourage more Native American college students to enter agricultural-related fields so that they can better assist their communities with the efforts to reclaim local food-system control.

For the purposes of these grants, agricultural and agricultural-related majors include, but are not limited to: agribusiness management, agronomy, animal husbandry, aquaponics, environmental engineering, fisheries and wildlife, food production and safety, food-related policy and legislation, food science and technology, horticulture, irrigation science, nutrition education, and sustainable agriculture or food systems.

Applicants must demonstrate a commitment to helping his/her community reclaim local food-system control.

Reclaiming control over local food systems is an important step toward ensuring the long-lasting health and economic well-being of Native people and communities. Native food-system control has the potential to increase food production, improve health and nutrition, and eliminate food insecurity in rural and reservation-based communities, while also promoting entrepreneurship and economic development.
