The G3 Grow Beyond Scholarship is back and open for applications from bright young Canadian students with a vision for the future of agriculture.
In partnership with Agriculture in the Classroom Canada (AITC-C), G3 launched the scholarship in 2020 and awarded it again last year. The 2022 edition will again include 6 scholarships of $4,000 each for post-secondary studies in any discipline, plus $1,000 for each of the winners’ high schools to further encourage innovation.
Applicants are required to submit a 2-to-4-minute video essay describing their idea for innovation in agriculture and how their studies will help achieve it. All the applicants’ videos will be posted on the scholarship website g3growbeyond.org where visitors can cast a vote for their favourite. Winners will be chosen based partially on votes received, and the decisions of a panel of judges. Last year’s winners were announced during a live Facebook event.
“A dozen bright young students have already been put on the path to academic success thanks to our scholarship program, and we’re excited to start the process to select 6 more,” says G3 President and CEO Don Chapman. “The ideas presented by all the applicants are inspiring, and I am looking forward to seeing this year’s entries.”
"We are excited to be heading into the third year of the G3 Grow Beyond Scholarship program. It is so important for youth to get curious about agriculture and food, and to share their bright ideas for the future of technology and innovation in Canada.," said Melissa Galay, Education Specialist for AITC-C. "We are grateful for the support from G3 to be able to offer these scholarships as financial support for six students heading to their first year of post-secondary education in the fall of 2022."
The scholarship is available across Canada, except Québec. For full details on the G3 Grow Beyond Scholarship, and to apply, visit g3growbeyond.org.
