2022 Eco-Scholar

Yorkshire Valley Farms Canadian Eco-Scholar Award

Applications for the 2022 program have now closed

The Guelph Organic Conference and Yorkshire Valley Farms are pleased to partner once again on the Canadian Eco-Scholar Award program. We are excited to announce that this year’s Award is open to students across Canada in every province and territory and offers a total of $10,000 in funding to be granted to four students. The Award is intended to provide financial support for Canadian students in any area of study, so long as they are passionate about organic agriculture practices and how they can be a force for good in our society.

The Eco-Scholar Award was first launched in 2004 by the Guelph Organic Conference. In partnership with Yorkshire Valley Farms, the Award has been expanded to provide a total give-away of $10,000, distributed as follows:

  • One $5,000 first place award
  • Two $2,000 second place awards
  • One $1,000 third place award

To apply for the 2022 Eco-Scholar Award, students are being asked to submit a video of up to two minutes in length in which they express the role they hope to play in the organic regenerative movement. The video format gives students a chance to tell the judging panel about themselves, how they are engaged in organics, and how they intend to use their studies and actions to progress organic regenerative practices in their communities.

We hope you will help us in spreading the word and sharing with any students who you think may wish to apply. We want to support the next generation of organic leaders. We believe their ideas will help to actively shape the future of organic regenerative agriculture.

The application form, including full rules and regulations, can be found at https://yorkshirevalley.com/2022-yorkshire-valley-eco-scholar-award/

Applications must be submitted by November 30th, 2021.
