2021 Scholarships

About the program

Each year, SaskBarley offers scholarships as an opportunity to invest in promising university students who are carrying out university-level research that can help SaskBarley achieve its organizational goals. The scholarship program is also designed to encourage and support new research that will benefit Saskatchewan’s barley sector.

2021/22 scholarships

This year we will be offering scholarships at both a PhD/graduate level ($5,000) and an undergraduate level ($2000).

These scholarships are open to any post-secondary students enrolled in part- or full-time studies focused specifically on barley research. Funding is for one year, but can be renewed.

To apply

To apply, submit the following to cole@saskbarleycommission.com:

  • A one-page summary of your research project(s), outlining how the research will: help ensure barley is a long term, profitable and internationally competitive crop choice for Saskatchewan producers; increase the production and value of barley for both the producer and consumer; and support either the food, fee, malt or industrial uses of barley.
  • An accompanying letter from an academic supervisor, confirming the research
  • A current CV
