Students are invited to submit a three-minute video or 1,000-word essay on farming and the environment as the 2023 Saskatchewan Agriculture Student Scholarship Program is now open.
Scholarships will be awarded to students in Grade 12 and/or recent graduates entering agriculture-related post-secondary studies in 2023. One winning scholarship of $4,000 and three runner-up scholarships of $2,000 will be awarded.
Using the theme ‘farming and the environment,’ applicants are encouraged to develop the idea of environmental sustainability within farming and the importance of public perception on modern farming practices. Applicants should focus on progressive environmental practices conducted by producers and the importance of conveying that message to the public to enhance trust in the industry, say ministry officials.
The deadline is Mar. 1, 2023. More details can be found online.
