The Ontario Federation of Agriculture (OFA) is offering three bursaries in the amount of $2,000 per recipient. The bursaries are available for students of OFA families who are entering or currently pursuing a post-secondary education in an agriculture-related program.
The bursaries funds were raised at the 2017 Annual General Meeting silent auction. The bursaries will be awarded regionally, including one recipient from each region across Ontario (Northern, Eastern and South-Western).
Eligible applicants include students of OFA families, or employees of an OFA member.
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 2018 Annual General Meeting November 19-20 at the Hamilton Convention Centre in Hamilton, Ontario.
The deadline to submit an application is June 30, 2018.
