Did you know that agriculture and food is a strong part of Ontario’s economy? It is a vibrant and dynamic industry that includes farming, research, science and technology, business, culinary arts, food processing and distribution.
The Frontenac Federation of Agriculture (FFA) is a local organization made up of over 350 members across the county who are primary producers, such as dairy, beef, chicken, sheep and hog farmers, market gardeners, field crops and greenhouse growers. We are pleased to sponsor again this year, a $500 bursary to a Frontenac County student who will be furthering their post–secondary education in their chosen field within the agri-food industry. To qualify for this bursary, a student must be accepted into or returning to a post-secondary institution (college or university) program in fall of 2021.
That could include any of these areas of study: agriculture, food, nutrition, culinary arts, agricultural commerce or marketing, veterinary, horticulture or food service. Really, the number of students who could potentially qualify for this award is quite large because when you think about it, agriculture and food impacts our lives in many ways everyday!
The student must be sponsored by a current Ontario Federation of Agriculture member residing in Frontenac County, City of Kingston, Wolfe or Howe Island, and include that member’s OFA number on the application.
Please fill out the application form and email to the FFA Bursary Committee, c\o Dudley Shannon: email@example.com
The application deadline is June 15, 2021.
