Thank you for your interest in the EarthDance Farm & Garden Apprenticeship!

Scholarship Request + Application Deadline: February 1st, 2020.

A limited number of partial to full scholarships are available for the EarthDance Organic Farm School Apprenticeship Program. As the price of tuition ($1250) does not completely cover EarthDance’s expenses per student, we ask that applicants request consideration for scholarship only if the program’s cost would represent a significant financial hardship. To apply for a scholarship to the 2020 EarthDance Farm & Garden Apprenticeship Program, please answer the following questions and include your request in part II of your application.

After EarthDance has received parts I and II of your application we will review all of your documents.

All scholarship applicants will need to participate in an on-farm interview in January or February 2020, once we receive your application. Acceptance into the program and scholarship awards will be announced by late-February. Please note, a $25 application fee is required regardless of your scholarship request.

*In order to assure commitment to the apprenticeship, recipients of full scholarships will need to submit a completely refundable deposit of $100 by March 11th. Deposits will be returned to scholarship participants that complete the program with at least 80% attendance at field shifts and weekly classes.
