Saskatchewan Agriculture Student Scholarship Program 2023 applications are now being accepted.
“This scholarship is an investment in the bright minds of our province and ensures the sustainability of the sector,” said Saskatchewan Agriculture Minister David Marit.
The theme of this year is ‘farming and the environment.’
Applicants of the scholarship should focus on and explore environmental sustainability practices conducted by producers for modern farming and their perception in the public’s eyes to enhance trust in the industry.
For the scholarships, a three-minute creative video or 1,000-word essay needs to be submitted containing discussions of farming and the environment. Only students of grade 12 and/or recent graduates will be awarded who are going to pursue agriculture-related post-secondary studies in 2023. The first award will be $4,000 and $2,000 will be awarded to three runner-up scholarship holders.
The application deadline for scholarships is Mar 1, 2023.
