Allegheny Mountain Institute believes in the power of food to build vibrant, healthy communities.
AMI’s tuition-free Farm Fellowship is designed for individuals interested in rural agriculture and sustainable farming. Participants live and work on a Certified Naturally Grown farm, study and practice cottage industry skills, and distribute fresh produce to a remote, but lively, Appalachian community. Fellows build a wide variety of practical farming skills through hands-on farm time and experiential learning, complemented by weekly educational and skills development sessions.
Educational scholarships to all selected Fellows includes a $1,700 monthly stipend, along with housing, farm-fresh vegetables and farm products, and a group pantry budget. Additional need-based scholarships are available for travel and gear expenses.
Applications for the 2023 season (May 1 - October 27, 2023) are available now.
