Renewed funding announced to build public trust in agriculture in Saskatchewan

Regina, Saskatchewan – Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada - Today, the governments of Canada and Saskatchewan announced applications are now being accepted for the 2022 Saskatchewan Agriculture Student Scholarship Program.

This year’s theme is ‘transparency.’ Applicants of the scholarship are encouraged to explore what transparency is and how it is connected to the public’s perception of modern agriculture. The scholarship encourages conversations about where our food comes from and how everyone along the value chain shares a role in communicating about food production.

Students are invited to submit a creative three-minute video or 1,000-word essay discussing transparency in agriculture. Scholarships will be awarded to students in Grade 12 and/or recent graduates entering agriculture-related post-secondary studies in 2022. One winning scholarship of $4,000 and three runner-up scholarships of $2,000 will be awarded.
