Food Animal Concerns Trust Conference Scholarships (FACT)

Food Animals Concerns Trust

As funding allows, FACT awards scholarships of up to $400 for livestock and poultry farmers to attend educational events—including virtual events—to learn knowledge, skills and best practices related to humane animal management, business and farm finance, and/or value-added production processes.


Current livestock and poultry farmers who reside in the U.S. and express an intention to learn about humane animal husbandry methods are eligible. Farmers must own or be employed by a farm that raises livestock (ruminants, swine) and/or poultry.

  • FACT encourages limited resource farmers, beginning farmers, veteran farmers, BIPOC farmers, and farmers belonging to other historically underserved or marginalized groups to apply for a scholarship.

  • FACT is only able to award one scholarship per farm/household each year.

  • Farmers who received a scholarship within the past 12-month period are not eligible for a scholarship due to limited funds.

  • Events focused solely on aquaculture, equine husbandry, and beekeeping are not eligible.

  • Scholarships will not be awarded for conferences or events that have already been completed.


Within 14 days of attending the event, scholarship recipients are expected to complete a short report form about their experience at the conference. Scholarship recipients are invited to share photos of their farm or animals with FACT to promote their farm and scholarship experience. Scholarship recipients will also be added to FACT’s farmer email list.
