Undergraduate bursaries and scholarships provide direct support to students and are one of the most common avenues chosen by donor. When establishing new awards, donors have considerable flexibility regarding the specific use of funds. Awards may be tied to a program, subject area or even a class.
Graduate Student Awards
Graduate student awards are used to enhance and support the academic goals of students pursuing a post-graduate diploma, MSc or PhD level programs. These awards are often associated with specific research areas. The level of graduate student support varies depending on a donor’s wishes.
Travel opportunities can greatly enhance a student’s educational experience by providing access to conferences, research and industry site tours as well as a variety of experiential learning activities.
Agriculture and Youth
To encourage the next generation of students, the college is committed to providing experiences that stimulate an interest in the science as well as the enjoyment of agriculture.
AgBio Discovery Program – This program provides children and youth with the opportunity to explore agricultural science through interactive and hands-on learning. Activities include school tours and weeklong summer camps for elementary school children. Currently, more than 1000 young people participate in the program each year.
Class gifts may be established in honour of your graduating year to support a specific area of interest to your classmates.
It is possible to direct funds toward existing areas of research, graduate student support and equipment purchases.
The college also accepts in-kind contributions of needed field and laboratory research equipment.
If you are uncertain about which project or cause to support, a donation to the College of Agriculture and Bioresources Endowment and Enhancement Fund will be directed to our most pressing needs. This fund was created to support the college’s teaching, research, extension and infrastructure priorities.
