The 2020 Simply Organic Scholarship Application
General information
The Simply Organic endowment was established in 2009 through donations from Frontier Natural Products Co-op and Simply Organic to pay the full course fees for one apprentice each year in the Apprenticeship Program. The scholarship will cover the $6,000 course fee in 2020.

For information on other scholarship support available, please see the Scholarship Opportunities information at:

We have established an application process for the Simply Organic Scholarship to help the staff select one recipient per year that best meets the stated intention of the fund founders:
• The winning student should have demonstrated academic achievement, commitment, and ability to expand organic and sustainable agriculture, and have an established financial need.
• As part of the agreement in receiving the award, the student is expected to provide Frontier Natural Products Co-op with biographical and related information on their experiences in the Apprenticeship Program and their future plans.
• The student is also expected to provide at least one additional update on their work and impact of their training within 3 to 5 years after completing the program.
• And the student furthermore agrees, by their acceptance of the fee waiver, to allow Frontier to publish and use their name and their information in various media in a manner that demonstrates the value of the education received by the student.
