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. 

Scholarship application

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


We are currently accepting applications, however the consideration process will begin on November 1.  To apply, fill out the application form.

Note: As stipulated by those generous funders who have seeded our scholarship trust, scholarships are available to BFA members only. 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.

  • Starting November 1, 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.  Please 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
