2012 SCAA Symposium Producer Scholarship – Now Accepting Applications

We are pleased to offer a scholarship opportunity to attend the SCAA Symposium April 18-19, 2012, in Portland, OR. SCAA, supported by Probat Burns, BUNN, and SCAA’s Sustainability Council, is offering up to 5 scholarships for producers or producer representatives, covering the registration fee ($995) for the event. The recipients of the scholarship will be responsible for covering their own transportation and lodging expenses.

Scholarships will be awarded as available. Priority will be given to producers who sell a minimum of 35% of their coffee to U.S. markets; to representatives of small-scale producers; and for whom coffee is the primary source of income. We will also strive to balance scholarships as evenly as possible between men and women. English is not required, but a working command of English will greatly enhance the experience. Simultaneous Spanish translation will be available for this event.

Please fill out and submit the questionnaire below by Monday, March 12, 2012.

You will be notified of your scholarship status by Friday, March 23, 2012.
