Grow Food Calgary Scholarship Program Information

Grow Food Calgary will welcome any donations to their “scholarship fund”, which is designed solely to pay for Grow Food Calgary education sessions.

By donating one free ticket to the scholarship fund, Grow Food Calgary is the first Scholarship partner at the Ladybug level.

Donations may be designated to certain persons, if desired, or put into the general fund. The fund will pay for the tickets of those designated persons.

All other donations to the fund will go towards other, non-designated applicants.

Grow Food Calgary will accept applications for scholarships. Send Email, with subject line: Grow Food Calgary Scholarships.

Prior to our first session, based on the funds in the scholarship pool, we’ll select x scholarship recipients, so the funds are completely depleted, unless otherwise directed by the donor.
