The 坎德拉布兰德 SHA Scholarship

Soil health and regenerative agriculture pioneer, 坎德拉布兰德, alongside her husband David Brandt, raised their children with respect and honor, were vital members of their community and beyond, and dedicated their lives to helping others regenerate our soils, our ecosystems and ultimately our health.

In memory of 坎德拉布兰德, the Soil Health Academy now offers scholarships to qualifying 女性 and/or new and beginning farmers who are committed to growing the regenerative agriculture movement by implementing regenerative principles in their own operations or through regenerative agriculture education, outreach or policy advocacy.

坎德拉布兰德 奖学金 provide partial tuition funding for recipients to attend a three-day SHA regenerative ag school and will be awarded based on the applicant’s brief narrative describing how she/he intends to advance the cause of regenerative agriculture on her/his farm and community, if selected to receive the scholarship.


Past SHA Student Scholarship

We believe that it is important to continue learning and networking, so we have put together a scholarship program for our past students that want to come back to learn more.

In order to be eligible for this scholarship, applicants must have attended a three-day Soil Health Academy in the past.




"Thanks to the scholarship I was able to attend the school and because of that I am confident about ranching without harming the environment and being more profitable. Recently, I leased a ranch where I am going to practice everything I learned. I hope that my neighbors can copy what I’ve learned so many people can do the same regenerating soils.”
