Central Elgin, ON: Elgin County is pleased to announce that the application process is open for the 2014 International Plowing Match (IPM) Legacy Agricultural Scholarship.

Each year $2,500 is awarded to one female and one male student who are attending college or university in Canada to study an agriculturally-related program. Examples of such programs include agricultural sciences, agribusiness, agri-tourism, nutrition, earth sciences, and food sciences. The scholarship is provided as a result of generous support of legacy funds from the 2010 International Plowing Match hosted by Elgin County.

"Agriculture has always been a vital part of Elgin County's economy," said Warden David Marr. "It is crucial that we support and encourage youth to pursue careers in this important industry."

To be eligible for a scholarship an applicant must:

  • Be a resident of the County of Elgin or City of St. Thomas;
  • Have completed at least the first year of studying at a post secondary institution in Canada with an appropriate accredited curriculum and studying a discipline related to agriculture; and,
  • Agree to have his or her name and photograph publicized.

"On behalf of the volunteers of the 2010 IPM we are proud of this legacy, realizing that by investing in our youth we are supporting the future of this community," said Duncan McPhail, Chairman of the 2010 IPM Executive Committee.

All applications must be received by 4:30 p.m. on May 15, 2014. Visit www.elgincounty.ca or call 519-631-1460 ext. 180 for a full list of criteria and a copy of the scholarship application.
