© 2018 Food Dignity

Graduate students

In the Food Dignity project, we fully funded five people to garner master’s degrees at University of Wyoming and partially funded three doctoral students (in some cases paying only a small fraction of the costs) who earned PhDs at Cornell University or University of California, Davis. This support comprised the bulk of our education spending, at $396,000 total.
