Low-Income Scholarship Fund



NASCO's Cooperative Education and Training Institute offers a proven program to help empower and educate young people about cooperatives. For most participants the conference is a first introduction to cooperative sectors beyond their local co-op, and this weekend immersion gives them a sense of the broader cooperative movement. However, many cooperatives are unable to obtain proper training for lack of adequate resources. Help us generate the resources necessary to make this essential training available to cooperatives and cooperators of modest and low-income.
