We are pleased to announce that OFMA and the Gorge Grown Food Network* are offering travel scholarships for farmers market managers and organizers who do not otherwise receive compensation to cover the cost of travel to Corvallis, OR to attend the Rural Farmers Market Workshops and/or the OFMA Annual Meeting.
* Gorge Grown Food Network funding supported by USDA Specialty Crop Block Grant through the Oregon Department of Agriculture.
We are offering travel scholarships of $50 to $350 in fifty dollar increments based on the round-trip distance from your farmers market to Corvallis, OR. Scholarship amounts will be calculated for awardees as the round-trip mileage multiplied by $0.50 a mile.
Travel Scholarship recipients will be reimbursed after attending the event via check sent by mail. Scholarship recipients will also be asked to fill out a short survey about their experience at the event.
