 WGRF Graduate Scholarships

Beginning in June of 2011 WGRF started providing $100,000 a year towards Graduate Scholarships at the three prairie universities: University of Manitoba, University of Alberta and the University of Saskatchewan.

WGRF believes this scholarship will help and encourage top students to further their studies in crop research. WGRF sees great value in attracting the best minds to crop research; to generate improved technology and productivity for western crop producers. The Scholarship will be administered on a rotating basis between the University of Manitoba, University of Alberta and the University of Saskatchewan. Each university will receive $100,000 every three years. Each university can choose to fund one Ph. D Student at rate of $33,000 per year for three years or two Master Students at $25,000 per year for two years.

WGRF believes that committing money to graduate students who have demonstrated outstanding academic achievement is a very worthwhile investment for producers. WGRF has been investing producer dollars in agriculture research and breeding programs at these institutions for a number of years.

If your a student interested in applying for this scholarship, please visit the individual university websites below for application details.
