SaskOats Nutrition Support Bursary

Oats are a healthy way to start the day, or as an afternoon snack. They are full of fibre, vitamins, and energy. Did you know Saskatchewan farmers grow over 1.5 million tonnes of oats annually? That's a lot of oatmeal!

We have partnered with the Saskatchewan Oat Development Commission to offer ten $250 bursaries to support in-school nutrition programs. The bursaries may be used toward oats and oat-based foods for students receiving meals or universal snacks at school.

This opportunity is open to both urban and rural schools in the province and will be awarded based on demonstrated need.

In addition to the bursary funds, schools will receive a nutrition information package, access to classroom resources and a recipe card for students to take home.

Submit the application below to be considered for one of TEN bursaries available. To apply, let us know if your school offers a nutrition program, the number of participating students and how your school would benefit from the support. Funds must be used by June 18, 2021.
