Every year Common Ground Food Co-op awards a scholarship towards a student’s tuition. As conscious consumers, we need ongoing research on local and organic foods, the impact of GMOs, and other issues of agricultural sustainability. When we help young students who are already passionate about these issues gain college educations, we help the cause of sustainable food everywhere.
The 2013 Sustainable Scholarship is $1000. These funds will be paid directly to the nationally accredited institution of the Scholar’s choice, to be applied to the Scholar’s 2013 tuition. At the end of the 2013-2014 academic year, the Scholar will submit a short reflection upon what s/he has learned and how s/he will apply that knowledge to his or her commitment to food sustainability.
