Scholarship season is a reminder to mark your calendars

Reading Time: < 1 minute

With the return to school just around the corner, it’s the season of scholarship announcements — and a reminder that students planning to go to college or university a year from now should mark their calendars for when applications open again.

For example, three Albertans (Catharina Brosinsky, Jessica Hadwin and Torann Mecham) are among the 15 national winners of the 2021 John Deere Canada 4-H Scholarship and will receive $1,000 toward their post-secondary education.

That is just one of many scholarships available for 4-H members — 4-H Alberta alone gave out $270,000 in scholarships to 242 applicants in 2020. The organization has a streamlined application process so completing one online application means a 4-H member will be considered for all scholarships he or she is eligible for.

The Scholarships page on the 4-H Alberta website also has links to other scholarships, some ag based and others general, such as the scholarship matching service
