Alberta Wheat Commission funding undergraduate scholarships

May 27, 2014 - The Alberta Wheat Commission (AWC) is partnering with the University of Alberta (U of A) and the University of Lethbridge (U of L) to fund two new undergraduate scholarships to support and encourage students to enter the field of agriculture for their post-secondary education.

These two undergraduate scholarships will be awarded each year and provide $1,000 to future farm leaders entering an agriculture degree program at U of A and U of L. The scholarships will be awarded starting this fall and each fall thereafter, and will be based on academic achievement and community involvement. The U of A and U of L will each select a successful candidate and administer the scholarship funding.

For more information about the scholarships and eligibility requirements, visit, or contact the Department of Agriculture, Food and Nutritional Science at the U of A, and the Faculty of Agriculture at the U of L.
