Manitoba Canola Growers Association Scholarship (Degree)
In order to recognize and encourage the continued academic achievement of students within the Faculty of Agricultural and Food Sciences, the Manitoba Canola Growers Association has contributed $25,000, matched equally by the Manitoba Scholarship and Bursary Initiative, to establish an endowment fund of $50,000 at the University of Manitoba. The first scholarship, valued at the available annual income, will be offered in 2006.

The Manitoba Canola Growers Association was originally established as the Manitoba Rapeseed Growers Association in 1970. In 1983, the organization was incorporated as the Manitoba Canola Growers Association (MCGA). The MCGA is a non-profit organization comprised of producers who share the goal of developing and promoting the production and marketing of Manitoba-grown canola. The MCGA works to represent the interests of Manitoba canola growers in matters relating to canola research, development, and extension.
