Started in 2006 with just one scholarship, the Niman Ranch Next Generation Foundation Scholarship has blossomed to providing more than 32 scholarships in 2017 totaling more than $100,000 to children in our farming community.
As the Next Generation Foundation Scholarship has grown in size and importance to our chef and culinary community, we founded the Niman Ranch Next Generation Foundation Scholarship to bring this message beyond our business community to those who care about who and how our food is produced.
201 scholarships distributed from 2006-2017 starting with 3 scholarships in 2006 and 28 scholarships in 2017
Initiatives like the Niman Ranch Next Generation Foundation Scholarship with the Niman Ranch farm community are part of our overall commitment to the hard-working farmers and ranchers. We are proud to work with many different companies and individuals who help fund the Niman Ranch Next Generation Foundation Scholarship to support this next generation of farmers. These students use to funds to help defray the costs of getting a higher education and give traditional farming and ranches practices the prominence it deserves.
In an effort to help more farm families, we are forming a 501c3 non-profit to allow more individuals to help farmers who are committed to keeping rural economies thriving. Status is currently pending.
