Farm Foundation Cultivators
To help nurture the next generation of industry leaders, the Farm Foundation selects six university students to attend a Farm Foundation Round Table meeting. Cultivators, who are undergraduates, are selected from a competitive pool of applicants from accredited North American Land Grant colleges or universities. Students are nominated by their college dean or department head.
Each Cultivator is assigned a Farm Foundation Round Table host, who serves as a mentor during the meeting. Cultivators are expected to participate in all aspects of the meeting, as well as present a poster of a key aspect of their studies.
Funded by Round Table members and BNSF Railway Company, the Cultivator Program is an opportunity for students to interact with leaders in today’s food and agriculture sector. Each Cultivator’s involvement also adds another voice to the Farm Foundation Round Table discussions.
