Through the support of our generous sponsors, the Bionutrient Food Association is pleased to offer a limited number of scholarships to help defray the cost of attending the conference for those in need of financial support.  In return, scholarship recipients are asked to volunteer for two hours during the conference to assist the staff — we rely on your volunteer energy to make the Soil & Nutrition Conference a success, and all help is deeply appreciated.

A special thank you to the #NoRegrets Initiative for their support in scholarship funding!

Scholarship application

To apply, just answer a few questions to help us get to know you.  


To apply, click here for the application form.

  • Scholarships are available to BFA members only, as stipulated by those generous funders who have seeded our scholarship trust.  You do not need to be a member to apply, but will need to join if not already member, or renew if lapsed, before receiving scholarship monies.
  • Please note that scholarships will be applied towards conference tuition only, and do not cover the cost of meals or accommodations.
  • We will be awarding scholarships on a rolling basis until funds are depleted, with applications being considered in the order they are received.
  • We will let you know if you have been awarded a scholarship within two weeks of receiving your application.

If you are awarded a scholarship…

  • You will receive an email notification with directions about next steps, should you choose to accept and attend.  DO NOT REGISTER until you have received your award notice with details about how to register and have your scholarship applied.
  • Upon receiving your scholarship notification and registration instructions, you will have a week to register for the conference, or we will need to move on to other applicants, and your scholarship may be forfeited.

The Soil & Nutrition Conference is a vital dialogue about the future of agriculture, human health, ecological sustainability, and just as important, it is a wonderful opportunity to build community and bridge the dialogue into action. We would like to see as many as possible engaged and sharing in the conversation, and as such we are actively seeking additional sponsorship to be able to offer as many scholarships as we can.  If you are interested in learning how you or your organization can foster this transformation, we invite you to reach out to us at conference@bionutrient.org.
