The Alberta Wheat Commission is offering two $1,000 scholarships for students entering the agriculture program at the universities of Alberta and Lethbridge.
“These scholarships will encourage talented young students to start a career in agriculture and ensure continued success of Alberta’s wheat industry,” says commission chair Kent Erickson.
The undergraduate scholarships will be awarded starting this fall and each fall thereafter, and will be based on academic achievement and community involvement. Each university will select one successful candidate. More information is available at the Alberta Wheat Commission website, or by contacting the department of agriculture, food and nutritional science at the U of A, and the faculty of agriculture at the U of L.
