Apply for a Young Leader Scholarship today!
Since the 1950s, Holstein Canada has played a role in applauding young adults in their higher educational successes. Each year, Holstein Canada recognizes and awards students who are well rounded in their farm involvement; work experience; youth program involvement; future career choices; and excel in their academic studies. Six (6) successful students from across Canada (one student from the west; two from Ontario; two from Quebec; and one from Atlantic Canada) will be awarded $1,000 each as recognition of their achievements.
The applicants are judged on the criteria asked, make sure to list all your accomplishments and involvement as it may help the selection in the event of a close decision.
Other accomplishments may influence the selection committee in the event of a close decision. Once the Young Leader Advisory Committee has selected the successful candidates, winners will be notified immediately upon the Committee's decision in December. A general announcement of the winners will be made through a media release and a feature of the winners in the March-April InfoHolstein publication.
