The Arias M. Brownback Memorial Scholarship Fund
Arias M. Brownback was raised on his family’s farm in western Perry County and from an early age expressed an interest in farming. He attended his first PASA conference at the age of 18. Seeing fellow farmers dedicated to sustainable practices was a great inspiration to Arias. In his honor, PASA has established the Arias M. Brownback Memorial Scholarship Fund. Formed in 2001, this memorial fund is intended to inspire and aid young farmers to reach their full potential. This endowment is designed to help youth and other developing farmers attend the Farming for the Future Conference each year. The scholarship expresses PASA’s commitment to providing educational opportunities for those wishing to learn sustainable agriculture techniques and methods regardless of financial circumstances.
Arias M. Brownback Memorial Scholarship Fund scholarships are available for new and developing farmers who demonstrate a financial need to support continuing education in sustainable agriculture. Conference scholarships will be awarded for up to the full cost of the two-day main conference registration fees plus a one-year PASA membership of the appropriate level. This scholarship does not include lodging or meals. MAKE A CONTRIBUTION TODAY to the Scholarship Fund to help new and beginning farmers.
