Vermont's Table at Sterling College
Summer Program Scholarships
At Good Food Jobs we're all about education
, which is why we're hosting another year of Scholarships to Sterling College’s Vermont’s Table Summer Program
. There will be a total of three scholarships awarded: two $2,000 scholarships
and one $5,000 scholarship
. The incredible rise in Food Studies programs across different colleges and universities has not slowed, and we're particularly smitten with this option because it's:
- Only five weeks long and equally suited for summer session or professional development (it even allows students to have a few weeks of on-farm experience during the rest of their summer break).
- Located in Crafstbury, Vermont, nestled in the heart of the drop-dead gorgeous Northeast Kingdom, appropriately named for its lush landscapes and abundant agriculture.
- Taylor formerly taught the Food Entrepreneurism class, so she’s had a lot of experience helping to build up the program over the last two years.
about the program
is an intensive academic program in sustainable food systems that includes practical culinary experience, frequent field trips, lessons in sustainable agriculture, and seminars in food writing and food entrepreneurism. Courses are offered in two 5-week sessions (students choose one that best fits their schedule).
Session 1: May 26th - June 18th
Session 2: July 8th - August 9th
Note: you may enroll for either Session 1 or Session 2, not both.
The program is open to current Sterling College students, students from other colleges and universities, and adult learners. Some previous culinary experience and background in food systems is helpful, but not required. All participants have the option to receive college credit or audit the courses at a reduced tuition cost.
The program provides a truly unique experience to study a burgeoning sustainable food system and individual artisan food businesses scattered across the landscape.
