The Sustainable Development Foundation’s Student Grants

The cost of getting a Top-Notch Education is becoming a setback to most of the middle to lower-income classes. Those are exactly the people that represent the future of Sustainability. The Sustainable Agriculture Institute believes that the cost of an education should be tied more to the cost of the provision of such education, and not to the cost of fancy facilities.

One of the founders of S.A.I. has expressed his feelings, and that of the Institution, in a Manifesto entitled “The Future of Online Education“.

The Manifesto explores the realities of education, comparing the differences between online education and one in a brick and mortar physical education.

While it will take the rich and upper classes a while to come around to the realization that access to a good education is no longer tied to the ability to pay large sums of money, online access to the information of Sustainability is being offered at affordable rates.

One does no longer need to worry about burdening oneself with student loans in order to receive a great education in Sustainability.
