The future of Canadian agriculture is bright and the Canadian Agri-Business Education Foundation (CABEF) is proud to support and encourage young people to pursue an education in agriculture and food. The CABEF Pathways to Agri-Food Scholarships are funded through generous donations from the Canadian agriculture industry. This year, six $2,500 scholarships were awarded to students entering or currently pursuing an agricultural or agri-food related program at a Canadian college, university or technical institution.

The 2019 recipients of the CABEF Pathways to Agri-Food Scholarships are:

  • Marcus Grymonpre, Chilliwack, BC
  • Emily Gross, Bow Island, AB
  • Shaylyn Novak, St. Walburg, SK
  • Alice Rooke, Alexander, MB
  • Faith Emiry, Massey, ON
  • Isaac Ayer, Sackville, NB

“We are proud to support the future of the Canadian agriculture industry with these scholarships,” said Jenn Norrie, chair of the board for CABEF. “With the high-quality applications received from students across the country, the future of Canadian agriculture is very bright.”

Applicants were assessed on a combination of their leadership attributes, and written or video response to the question “What do you consider to be the two main opportunities for the Canadian agriculture industry and which one inspires you the most?”
