Barley Commission offers scholarships

The Saskatchewan Barley Development Commission (SaskBarley) announced recently that it is now taking applications for two scholarships for the 2019 year.

The scholarship program, newly introduced in 2019, is an opportunity to invest in promising university students who are carrying out university-level research that can help SaskBarley achieve its organizational goals, says Board Chair Jason Skotheim.

“We are very excited to announce this new program, which aims to help us encourage and support new research that will benefit Saskatchewan’s barley sector while also investing in our greatest source of homegrown innovation—our people,” he says.

“The investment into the next generation of scientists to lead the work in barley research is critical to the long term success of the crop for Saskatchewan producers. ”

The program will include two scholarships, one at a PHD/graduate level for $5,000 and one at an undergraduate level for $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.
