The Ontario Processing Vegetable Growers Bursary program was created to support and encourage individuals pursuing a career which relates to the processing vegetable industry and to ensure that there are new individuals who will have the interest, skills and abilities to further develop and grow this sector of Ontario’s agri-food economy.
The program allows for multiple bursaries to college or university students each year. These may include bursaries in memory of former OPVG directors Jim Whitson and Ken Epp. Note that the Jim Whitson Bursary is awarded to a student attending Ridgetown College only. Applicants must be a resident of Ontario and registered as a full-time student at any college or university entering their second, third, fourth or post-graduate year of study which relates to the processing vegetable industry.
If you require further information regarding the bursaries, please contact the OPVG office: Ph 519-681-1875 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Bursary Application Form is available at www.opvg.org or by request via phone or email. Applications must be submitted to OPVG no later than October 15th by regular mail to 435 Consortium Court, London, ON, N6E 2S8 or by e-mail to email@example.com
