The 2022 Agricultural Marketing Summit is a joint conference with Food Distribution and Research Society that will offer opportunities for networking and learning about our agriculture and food systems across the Nation.  This year we are excited to be able to offer two levels of scholarships for individuals to participate in the Summit, funding allocated from the USDA Agricultural Marketing Service.

These scholarships are centered around a commitment to Racial Equity. They will provide funding resources for individuals, who may have been otherwise unable and resource disadvantaged, to attend the Summit. Priority will be given to BIMPOC individuals and organizations, as well as those who do not have financial means to attend the Summit.  To apply for the scholarship, please fill out the application by either downloading and emailing a copy to Courtney Long (court7@iastate.edu), or by following this link to a fillable form.
