Applications are now being accepted for the 2018 Canadian Nuffield Farming Scholarships.
Five $15,000 scholarships are available to successful applicants. You must be between 25 and 45 years of age with a minimum of five years of agricultural business or farming experience.
Shannon McArton, Executive Director of Nuffield explains what the recipients will gain.
"It's an opportunity for them to travel internationally. We feel it is very important to gain perspective of what is going on at home by seeing how it is done around the world," she noted.
"The real goal of it is that these scholars, after they have done their travel study, make a report and share that with Canadian agriculture for the betterment of everyone."
The application deadline is April 30.
