Sustainable Food and Farming Program Support:

The Stockbridge School of Agriculture can provide limited support for student projects.  If you have an idea, talk with a faculty member first as you will need a faculty sponsor before a project is funded.  Create a simple grant proposal using the guidelines linked below and present it to the Sustainable Food and Farming Program Coordinator.
