Scholarships

The Saskatchewan Barley Development Commission (SaskBarley) is a farmer-directed, not-for-profit organization representing approximately 7000 producers in Saskatchewan. Our mission is to ensure the long-term profitability and sustainability of barley for Saskatchewan producers.

As such, we are introducing a scholarship program to invest in promising university students who are carrying out university-level research that can help us achieve our organizational goals.

We are offering two scholarships for the 2019 year:

  • PHD/Graduate level scholarship — $5,000/yr
  • Undergraduate level — $2,000/yr

Eligibility

These scholarships are open to any post-secondary students enrolled in part- or full-time studies focused specifically on barley research.

Apply

Students that meet the eligibility criteria mentioned above are invited to apply for either the undergraduate or graduate-level scholarship by submitting the following:

  • A one-page summary of their research project(s), outlining how the research will: help ensuring 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, feed, malt or industrial uses of barley.
  • An accompanying letter from an academic supervisor, confirming the research
  • A current CV

Please note: Funding is for one year, but can be renewed.

Timelines

  • Applications open: April 31, 2019
  • Application deadline: June 30, 2019
  • Successful recipients will be notified by August 30, 2019 and payments will be made in September 2019.
