The CFFO believes that solid academic training is a major factor in the emergence of effective members of any profession. The CFFO also believes that it has a duty to support the development of future leaders in Ontario agriculture.
In light of these beliefs, the CFFO will honour one student per CFFO district to the value of $500 toward post-secondary agricultural training.
The scholarship is open to qualifying applicants who (1) are secondary school graduates, (2) have parents or grandparents who are CFFO members, and (3) are registered for full-time studies in an agriculture-related program in the upcoming academic year during which they apply for the CFFO Scholarship.
Applicants must provide the following documentation to the CFFO head office by JULY 30, 2019, to be eligible for this scholarship:
- A completed CFFO Scholarship Application Form.
- Proof of full-time registration in an agriculture-related post-secondary course of study for the 2019/2020 academic year.
- A 500-word essay detailing why they are pursuing education in an agriculture-related career and how their faith informs their understanding of farming (or the agri-food related profession they plan to enter).
These documents may be submitted via email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject heading “CFFO Scholarship Application” or via mail, postmarked no later than July 30, to the Christian Farmers Federation of Ontario, 642 Woolwich Street, Guelph, ON N1H 3Y2.
