Terms and Conditions

Purpose

The purpose of the Program is to provide educational opportunities for customers of Farm Credit Services of America® and Frontier Farm Credit® (the “Associations”). The Associations will sponsor selected participants to attend agricultural-related education activities, conferences, meetings, and other similar events (the “Event”). Each sponsorship will consist of the reimbursement of registration or attendance cost for an approved Event in an amount determined solely by the Associations. At the discretion of the Associations, sponsorships will be approved following a review of the request from an Association customer. Travel, lodging and other similar expenses will not be reimbursed and are the responsibility of the customer. Events that already receive financial support from the Associations to make them more affordable and/or widely available are excluded. This includes Annie’s Project.
