Scholarship Program

Each year, SaskBarley offers scholarships as an investment in promising university students who are carrying out research focused on barley. The scholarship program also encourages and supports new research to benefit Saskatchewan’s barley sector.

Graduate students across Canada conducting research that benefits Saskatchewan barley farmers are eligible for SaskBarley’s graduate scholarships. This year SaskBarley is offering up to three graduate scholarships, awarding $6,000 at the PhD level and $4,000 at the MSc level.

SaskBarley also offers one $2,000 undergraduate scholarship to fourth-year College of Agriculture and Bioresources students at the University of Saskatchewan. Eligible students must be writing an undergraduate thesis focused on barley.

Applications for all programs will be accepted from June 3, 2024 to October 9, 2024 at 4 pm CST.

Successful applicants will be notified by November 12, 2024.
