All Grade 12 students or recent high school graduates planning to enroll in a 2018 agriculture-related post-secondary program are eligible.
Interested young people can apply by submitting a creative three minute video or a 1,000 word essay.
"This year's scholarship theme, 'Our Food has a Story', encourages young people to have a conversation about the relationship between agriculture and the food they eat," said Agriculture Minister Lyle Stewart. "The scholarship program identifies young agricultural leaders to help build public trust in our industry."
The top scholarship is $4000. Three runner-up scholarships of $2000 will also be awarded.
