Legacy Scholarship

Grain Farmers of Ontario Legacy Scholarship – Coming soon for 2023

Ontario’s agriculture and agri-food industries need skilled workers – in the field, in the lab, in the factory, and in the boardroom. A career in agriculture can be a career in science, technology, finance, communication, law, public policy – it is a wide-open field with endless potential.

Grain Farmers of Ontario has a mission to build, defend and promote an inclusive, innovative, and sustainable business environment that enables grain farmer-members the opportunity to prosper. As part of our Core Values, we have a commitment to Our Community.

The Grain Farmers of Ontario Legacy Scholarship encourages the pursuit of higher education in any area of study that will benefit agriculture or agri-food and supports the development of future leaders in these areas.

The Legacy Scholarship is open to students accepted or enrolled in any accredited post-secondary College or University program. Up to 10 scholarships of $5,000 per recipient will be awarded towards the individual’s studies and cost of school.  Up to five of those scholarships may be awarded to students pursuing non-agriculture specific studies.

Eligibility requirements:

  • Must be a permanent Ontario resident
  • Recipients are only eligible for one bursary in their lifetime
  • Students must be in a full-time program
  • Students must be attending an accredited College or University
  • Students are eligible during any point of their studies
