Bayer has opened up the 2020 application intake for two scholarship funds — one for those finishing high school and another for those already enrolled in post-secondary education.
The Bayer Crop Science Scholarship for Future Leaders is designed for students who are enrolled in an agriculture bachelor’s degree program at one of six eligible Canadian agriculture universities. Each scholarship is valued at $5,000 annually and awarded to students who have demonstrated their leadership, engagement, and contribution to agriculture in Canada through their academic, volunteer/community involvement and/or their extra-curricular activities. The deadline to apply is April 30, 2020.
The Bayer Fund Opportunity Scholarship is for graduating grade 12 students entering their first year of post-secondary education in agriculture, food science, or a culinary program at a Canadian university or college of their choice in the fall of 2020. Up to 65 scholarships valued at $1,500 each will be awarded to students based on demonstrated academic standards and leadership in their community. The application deadline for this scholarship is June 10, 2020.
Both programs are managed by Universities Canada and selections will be made by an independent panel. Find more information here.
