Nova Scotia Federation of Agriculture is pleased with the announcement regarding the Agriculture On-Farm Student Bursary Program. This program will provide high school and university students working on farm – family farms included – with funding to put towards their education.
While supporting their education, this program promotes students to seek jobs in agriculture. This program will also create awareness and support recruitment in the various careers connected to the agriculture industry.
“We see the program as a positive for the industry,” said Victor Oulton, president of Nova Scotia Federation of Agriculture. “This is a step towards inspiring the youth of our province to consider pursuing a career in agriculture. Whether it is on the farm or in a supporting role – youth in agriculture remain valued and essential to the future of our industry.”
Applications for the Agriculture On-Farm Student Bursary Program will be available on September 1.
