Scholarships and Sponsorships

Scholarships and Sponsorships

SMADC recognizes the importance of educational and networking opportunities for farmers and for young adults (high school and above) that promote and support agriculture, stimulate interest in careers in agriculture and grow a new generation of farmers. To address this need, SMADC is offering both sponsorships and scholarships to residents in Southern Maryland. 

Sponsorships are typically awarded to an entity seeking sponsorship funds for events that provide information or assistance to benefit the region’s farming community.

Scholarships are typically awarded to individuals who live in Southern Maryland to assist in the costs of attending training, a workshop or a program related to agriculture.

Preference is for residents/entities of Anne Arundel, Calvert, Charles, Prince George’s and St. Mary’s counties.

Applicants may apply anytime throughout the year, but requests will only be reviewed quarterly. The quarterly deadlines to submit applications for consideration are: January 1st, April 1st, July 1st and October 1st.

Submissions will be reviewed and evaluated by the SMADC board. For planning purposes, please note that the review process may take up to six weeks.
