Sustainability Scholarship

If you are an incoming freshman or transfer student interested in organic vegetable gardening, bee keeping, or perennial berry crop and small orchard management, you are encouraged to meet with faculty and students of the "garden crew" during your campus visit anytime through the academic year.

We will do our best to arrange a tour of the educational garden on campus and our small but productive market farm just east of town. We can talk with you about the college's Global Food Security program, our campus outreach to the local community, and about several course offerings in ecology, nutrition, and global sustainability.

Finally, if you are interested in joining our "crew" you may be considered for a renewable Sustainability Scholarship involving planning and work in the garden and on the farm. Though we honor students who come to us with dirt under their nails, no prior experience or expertise on your part is required, just a willingness to work with others while you learn about sustainable gardening and farming practices.

Preferred Method of Interview: On-Campus audition with faculty as part of a personalized campus visit.

Alternative Method of Interview: Stockdale Fellows Scholarship Day
