2018 Saskatchewan Agriculture Scholarship Announced

Released on October 11, 2017

Today, Agriculture Minister Lyle Stewart announced the 2018 Saskatchewan Agriculture Student Scholarship program.

“This year’s scholarship theme, ‘Our Food has a Story’, encourages young people to have a conversation about the relationship between agriculture and the food they eat,” Stewart said.  “The scholarship program identifies young agricultural leaders to help build public trust in our industry.”

A food story connects consumers to agriculture by talking about shared values – health and nutrition, affordability, food safety, and sustainability.

Interested students can apply for the scholarship by submitting a creative three minute video or a 1,000-word essay based on topics surrounding their food story.

“This scholarship has given me the opportunity to educate myself so that as an agvocate I can better address some of the myths and misconceptions surrounding agriculture,” 2017 Saskatchewan Agriculture Student Scholarship winner Amanda Mitchell said.

One winning scholarship of $4,000 and three runner-up scholarships of $2,000 will be awarded to students in Grade 12 and/or recent graduates entering agriculture-related post-secondary studies in 2018.

The application deadline is March 1, 2018.
