Seven students from across the country are recipients of the 2022 Pathways to Agri-Food Scholarships, sponsored by the Canadian Agri-Business Education Foundation.

The $2,500 scholarships are awarded to students entering or currently pursuing an agricultural or agri-food related program at a Canadian college, university or technical institution.

This year’s recipients are:

  • Annalise Steadman, Victoria, BC
  • Seanna Wengryn, Edmonton, AB
  • Mariah Maurer, Grenfell, SK
  • Emily Robb, Brandon, MB
  • Emily Bieman, Belgrave, ON
  • Devin Keenan, Cleveland, QC
  • Jill Lockerby, Hamilton, PEI

Applicants were assessed on a combination of their leadership attributes, and written or video response to the question “Equity, diversity, and inclusion are issues and opportunities that are important to the agriculture and agri-food sectors. Describe why these topics are crucial to address, and outline one concrete action our industry can take to be more equitable, diverse and inclusive.”

“We are proud to support the future of the Canadian agriculture industry with these scholarships,” says Becky Parker, chair of the board for CABEF. “It is clear this year’s applicants will champion equity, diversity and inclusion during their careers.”
