The Canadian Agri-Business Education Foundation (CABEF) provides financial support through the Pathways to Agri-Food Scholarships to encourage young people to pursue an education in agriculture and food. Applications are open for seven scholarships worth $2,500 each for students entering or pursuing an agricultural-related program at a Canadian college, university, or apprenticeship (trade) institution. The awards encourage students to take advantage of the many opportunities available in the agri-food sector.
“There are many pathways students can take on their way to careers in the agriculture and food industry,” said Jennifer Norrie, Chair of the CABEF Board of Directors. “We are proud to support the future of our industry by providing scholarships to students who are pursuing agriculture and food careers in Canada.”
One scholarship is awarded in each of Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Ontario, Québec, British Columbia/Territories, and Atlantic Canada. Applicants are assessed on a combination of their leadership attributes and written or video response to the question, “Equity, diversity, and inclusion are issues and opportunities that are important to the agriculture and agri-food sectors. Describe why these topics are crucial to address, and outline one concrete action our industry can take to be more equitable, diverse, and inclusive.”
The deadline to apply is April 30, 2022. For more information and to access the online application form, visit www.CABEF.org.
