Canada’s Outstanding Young Farmers Program has two $1,000 scholarships to help students pursue a post-secondary education.
One OYF Memorial Scholarship is for a new high school graduate and the other for someone who has already completed at least one year of post-secondary study. Students must be in an agriculture diploma or degree program.
Each applicant must write a one-page essay on the question: “Why are you passionate about agriculture in Canada?” and must also be active on the farm.
