Monsanto Fund's Commitment to Education


T
he Monsanto Fund is proud to support post-secondary education opportunities for farm families. By assisting young people from farm backgrounds in their pursuit of a college or university education in agriculture, we are investing in their future careers - and in the future of the agriculture industry in Canada.

 

Monsanto Fund is Helping Build Careers in Agriculture

 

The Monsanto Fund Opportunity Scholarship Program is for Canadian high school students from family farms who have successfully enrolled at a Canadian educational institution (degree or diploma) in a first-year agriculture program.

If you have applied for entry into a college or university, but have not yet been accepted, you can still apply for a Monsanto Fund Opportunity Scholarship. However, if you are awarded a scholarship, you must provide an acceptance letter from your educational institution.

Successful applicants will each be awarded a scholarship valued at $1500, based on demonstrated academic standards and leadership in the community. Selection will be made by an independent panel.
