Nuffield Canada scholarships open until late June


Applications for 2025 Nuffield Canada Agricultural Scholarships are due by June 30, 2024.

Nuffield Canada offers $20,000 scholarships to develop future leaders in agriculture. The Nuffield Scholarship is a rural leadership program available to Canadian citizens who are involved in any aspect of agriculture. Its goal is to attract mid-career applicants with a passion for agriculture who are ready to challenge themselves in a program of self-directed international travel and study.

“I highly recommend a Nuffield scholarship to any individual in Canadian agriculture who is curious, enjoys travel, exploring, learning and wants to be part of a thriving international community of agriculturalists,“ says Steve Larocque, Nuffield Canada chair and 2008 scholar. “Through Nuffield, our scholars learn to navigate big topics, diverse opinions, people, cultures and ideas. If you’re looking to make a positive impact on your business, your community and Canadian agriculture, this is the opportunity for you.”

Candidates can apply through a written and one-way video application process, from which a short list is interviewed, then final selections made. Successful candidates will be awarded a $20,000 scholarship. Six individuals received scholarships in 2023.

Recipients must do a minimum of 10 weeks of travel study within 24 months to examine and research a topic of their choosing relevant to modern production or practices. They then write a scholar report on their research findings, conclusions, and recommendations, and make a presentation at Nuffield Canada’s annual general meeting.

Scholarship recipients can come from all areas of primary production including food, fibre, health care, biofuels, forestry, aquaculture, and fisheries. Successful candidates can represent any aspect of the value chain such as primary production, processing, governance, communications, safety, mental health, and others.
