Awards & Scholarships
The Farm Advisory Board administers two award programs directly – the CKNX Radio Farm Advisory Board FAB Award and the CKNX Radio Farm Advisory Board FAB Bursary.
The FAB Award recognises the contributions of an individual or group to the well-being of agriculture and the rural community.
The FAB Bursary provides a $1,000 contribution towards the education of a Midwestern Ontario student entering the second year of a post-secondary agriculture-related program.
The Board also administers the Bruce County IPM Commodities Food Court Agricultural Scholarship.
That $1,000 scholarship is funded by money raised at the 2008 IPM in Bruce County.
It’s available to Bruce County students graduating high school this year.
They need to be continuing their education in a post-secondary, agriculture program – apprenticing in an agriculture-related field – or otherwise be substantially engaged in the business of farming.
There’s no application form – applicants are asked to provide a resume and an approximately 1 thousand word description of the applicant’s future plans and desire to remain involved in agriculture.
