We are offering a limited number of scholarships which will cover expenses for travel, rooms, and conference registration (includes most of the meals). College students or recent graduates who may consider a career in Farm Business Management, as well as people already working in an agricultural field who might consider a career move to teaching Farm Business Management are encouraged to apply for the scholarship. For more information, contact mark.holkup@bismarckstate.edu or call Mark at 701-224-5417.

Attending the conference gives the participant an opportunity to learn about working with farmers in Farm Business Management and network with those already in the field. It is a great opportunity to gain understanding, learn about an exciting field and build a resumé all at the same time. CHS and our members recognize there will continue to be a strong need for new professionals pursuing careers in Farm Business Management in the years to come.
