The Canadian Agri-Business Education Foundation (CABEF) has announced their six scholarship recipients for 2023. The $2,500 scholarships are awarded to students entering or currently pursuing an agricultural or agri-food related program at a Canadian college, university or technical institution.
This year’s recipients are:
- Sarah MacDonald, Vanderhoof, B.C.;
- Erin Hughes, Longview, Alta.;
- Wyatt Pavloff, Perdue, Sask.;
- Milan Lukes, Winnipeg, Man.;
- Kyla Lewis, Dorchester, Ont.; and
- Matthew Bishop, Round Hill, N.S.
Applicants were assessed on a combination of their leadership attributes and their written or video response to: “Choose one U.N. Sustainable Development goal and highlight three ways your future career in agriculture and food will contribute to it.”
“We are proud to support the next generation of agri-food leaders with these scholarships,” says Becky Parker, CABEF board chair. “Each of the six recipients demonstrated impressive determination to support a sustainable future through their upcoming careers. We are confident that they will all make a positive impact on Canadian agriculture as they pursue their passions.”
