The Saskatchewan Stock Growers Association (SSGA) is now accepting applications for its SSGA Zone Scholarships and SSGA Rangeland Scholarship for 2019. Altogether, six scholarships are available valued between $500 and $1,000 to outstanding students pursuing post-secondary education in agriculture, the livestock industry and rangeland management. The deadline to apply for all scholarships is February 1.
“With these SSGA Scholarships, we are ensuring the future of the beef industry by fostering the leaders of tomorrow,” stated SSGA President Bill Huber. “It is rewarding to see the children of our members receive advanced education, then return to their communities and make their contribution to the industry.”
Applicants for the SSGA Zone Scholarships must be in Grade 12 and be pursuing post secondary studies or must be already enrolled in a post-secondary institution. They must also have a family member who is a member of SSGA and resides in the Zone in which they are applying. The Zone Scholarships will be awarded at the annual meetings in each Zone.
SSGA is also seeking applicants for its annual Rangeland Scholarship valued at $1,000. Applicants must be a Saskatchewan resident and be enrolled in a post-secondary institution in a program related to range management. They also must have a family member who is a SSGA member. The Rangeland Scholarship will be presented at the SSGA Annual Meeting in June.
