Applications Open for Second Annual Farm Business Scholarship

The second annual Robert (Bob) L. Ross scholarship program is now accepting applications. The scholarship is offered by Agri-Food Management Excellence (AME) in collaboration with Farm Management Canada, Family Farms Group and the Ross Family. Applications must be received by September 15, 2015

The successful recipient will receive free tuition to the CTEAM (Canadian Total Excellence in Agricultural Management) program (valued at $7,500) as well as up to $4,000 towards travel expenses. New this year, the recipient will also receive an extra $2,500 towards an additional farm team member’s tuition to CTEAM or other AME educational seminars, thanks to support from Family Farms Group.
Eligible applicants must demonstrate:
  • A progressive operation and entrepreneurial spirit
  • Passion for the industry – community or industry involvement
  • How the value gained from the program will be used

The scholarship was formed last year in memory of Bob Ross, a dairy farmer and passionate farm business consultant from St. Marys, Ontario, who lost his courageous battle with cancer in March 2014. Bob was instrumental in the creation of the CTEAM program, a two-year, four session business management course for farmers and ranchers.

The scholarship will be awarded at Farm Management Canada’s Agricultural Excellence Conference taking place in Regina, Saskatchewan, Nov. 25-27 2015.
