Scholarships Available for Women to K-State’s Risk and Profit Conference

Woman Managing the Farm underwriting scholarships.

A limited number of full scholarships are available for women who would like to attend Kansas State University’s 2008 Risk and Profit Conference Aug. 14-15. The scholarships, available on a first-come, first-served basis, are underwritten by “Women Managing the Farm,” a project to support women who own or are managing agricultural operations or who plan to.

The Risk and Profit Conference, sponsored by K-State’s Department of Agricultural Economics and K-State Research and Extension, is designed to give agricultural producers and affiliated businesses a competitive edge in their operations, according to James Mintert, professor of agricultural economics and state agricultural economics leader for K-State Research and Extension. Presentations on farm management, technology, marketing, and policy issues in agriculture will be given by agricultural economics faculty.

Without a scholarship, the regular early registration fee for the conference is $195 for the first attendee from an organization and $175 for a second or more if paid by Aug. 6. After Aug. 6, the fee is $220 for the first attendee and $200 for the second or more. The fee includes all sessions; meals (two lunches, one dinner and one breakfast); conference proceedings on compact disk and parking.

More information about the scholarships and the conference itself is available on the Web: or by contacting Rich Llewelyn at 785-532-1504 or [email protected]. More information on “Women Managing the Farm” is available on the program’s Web site:
