Do you live in a county served by the Appalachian Regional Commission? If so, there is good news! Scholarships are available to cover registration costs to the N.C. Rural Assembly on September 28-29. Click here for a list of ARC counties.
The Assembly begins on September 28 with pre-conference workshops, a reception and dinner. In order to receive a scholarship, ARC award recipients must agree to attend the pre-conference workshop, "Passing the Torch: Farm and Small Business Succession Planning." The workshop will feature experts on facilitating succession opportunities and promoting farm and small business succession planning as a rural youth development strategy.
Employees of Community Development Corporations throughout North Carolina are eligible to apply for a separate set of scholarships. Like the ARC scholarships, these awards cover the $200 registration cost for both days of Assembly programming. CDC scholarship winners are invited to attend the pre-conference workshop of their choice. See a detailed Assembly agenda.
Download this form to apply for either scholarship. Please note that in each case, the scholarship does not cover hotel or travel costs.
