Student Scholarship Opportunity

Tell your food story for a chance to win an agricultural scholarship!

For students passionate about speaking up and telling the story of agriculture, the Saskatchewan Ministry of Agriculture is offering the Agriculture Student Scholarship for the eighth consecutive year.

Saskatchewan grade 12 students and recent high school graduates (within the last two years) have the chance to win a grand-prize scholarship of $4,000 or one of three runner-up scholarships of $2,000 when they submit a three-minute video or 1,000-word essay detailing their food story. This year’s scholarship theme, ‘Our Food Has a Story’, encourages young people to have conversations with people about the relationship between agriculture and the food they eat.

To be eligible for this scholarship, you must be planning to take an agriculture-related post-secondary education program beginning in the fall of 2018. This scholarship program has been designed to identify young people who thinkAG and plan to pursue an exciting career in the industry.

If you are a teacher or school guidance counselor, please share this scholarship opportunity with your students!

 

Deadline to apply is March 1, 2018.
