High School Scholarships

The $1,000 scholarships are available to students who are from a farm that is a member of the Manitoba Canola Growers Association and are planning to attend post secondary education in any field within two years of graduating.

Students will submit their applications, which will be judged by an independent panel, based on academic standing, their personal canola connection, references, essay submission and school and community involvement. The top five applicants will be selected and each winner will be presented with the scholarship at their graduation ceremony.

This year due to COVID 19 we were not able to present cheques to students so scholarships were mailed out to our winners along with a few canola gifts.
