About Tribal Agriculture Fellowship

The mission of the Tribal Agriculture Fellowship is to create opportunities for students to advance their education in agriculture, increase specialized knowledge and preserve and promote the legacy of agriculture in tribal communities.

The TAF Program is a last dollar fellowship program. Students are encouraged to accept financial aid from other sources including university financial assistance, federal financial aid, prestige fellowship & scholarships, and tribal scholarships.

TAF was designed to close the financial gap to allow Fellows to place their primary focus on their academic pursuits while allowing Fellows to have the time and resources needed to participate in educational enrichment activities.
