The Ontario Federation of Agriculture (OFA) is accepting applications for its 2019 student bursary program. OFA is offering three bursaries in the amount of $2,000 per recipient for students of OFA families across Ontario who are entering or currently pursuing a post-secondary education in an agriculture-related program. This is the fourth year that OFA will be awarding bursaries to OFA family members.
The bursaries funds were sourced from the silent auction at OFA’s 2018 annual meeting. The bursaries will be awarded regionally, including one recipient from each region across the province. The regions include: South-Western Ontario, Central Ontario and Northern & Eastern Ontario.
Bursary recipients will be selected from applicants who are OFA members, a child of, or employee of an OFA member and are residents of Ontario.
Applicants should be able to demonstrate volunteer and industry related accomplishments, an interest in agriculture and rural issues, community involvement and satisfactory academic performance.
The bursary winners will be announced at OFA’s 2019 Annual General Meeting in November at the Hamilton Convention Centre in Hamilton, Ontario.
The deadline to submit an application is June 30, 2019.
