Annie’s Sustainable Agriculture Scholarship Application

Sustainable and organic agriculture is at the heart of everything we do. That’s why each year we award scholarships to students through our Sustainable Agriculture Scholarship program. We’re proud to support the next generation of farmers committed to sustainable farming practices by offering $100,000 in funds to students studying sustainable agriculture.

Eligibility Guidelines

Annie’s Sustainable Agriculture Scholarship Program is open to full time undergraduate and graduate students studying at an accredited 2 or 4 year college or graduate school in the U.S. for the 2015/2016 school year. Students must be focusing studies on sustainable agriculture. International students may apply as long as they are studying at a U.S. school. Annie’s accepts applications postmarked between November 3, 2014 and January 5, 2015. If you are chosen to receive an award, you will be notified by May 25th, 2015, and funds will be dispersed directly to your school on or around July 2, 2015.

The Application

The application consists of two parts- your application and your supporting documents. Complete the application cover page, sign the form and draft a personal statement. Your supporting documents consist of an official copy of your transcript and two letters of recommendation from someone who can speak to your commitment to Sustainable Agriculture. The letters of recommendation must be from contacts that are NOT related to you. Letters of recommendation should be in a sealed envelope and the writer should sign the seal.
