Our 2023 Fellowship cohort is currently underway and we are no longer accepting applications.

Urban Adamah is committed to the continued financial accessibility of our Fellowship. Thanks to our program supporters, we are able to offer the Fellowship at a suggested sliding scale of $900 – $4,635. The Fellowship fee covers food, housing, staffing resources, and all program-related expenses for the full program.

The actual cost of the Fellowship is roughly $15,000 per Fellow. To cover these costs, close to 85% is raised from foundations and individuals, about 10% comes from farm visitor fees, and the remaining 5% represents what we ask Fellows to pay. Your contribution will help make it possible for another Fellow to attend. 

Urban Adamah is honored to partner with the Sogorea Te’ Land Trust, an Urban Indigenous Women-led Trust in the East Bay, and to pay the Shuumi Land Tax in support of the vital work of the Trust. Please note that program costs also help us support our community partners such as Sogorea Te’. 

We honor and acknowledge that Fellows come from a range of class backgrounds. To consider how much you and/or your family can contribute to the Fellowship, we ask that you consider the following chart to guide your thinking. If you feel stuck or confused about how much to pay, please feel free to reach out to and we can talk it through with you.

Upon acceptance, you are asked to pay the full program fee, which is due within two weeks of the date you accept a spot in the program. We cannot reserve your place without the program fee. We are happy to work out a payment plan with you if you are unable to pay the full program fee in one payment.


If you cancel your spot in the Fellowship…

  • more than 60 days in advance of the Fellowship start date, you will receive the amount you paid minus $150
  • within 30 – 60 days of the Fellowship start date, you will receive back half of the amount that you paid
  • fewer than 30 days in advance of the Fellowship start date, you will not receive a refund
Regardless of when you cancel, you will receive your $75 room deposit back.
