Eligible students registered in an environmental science or agricultural program (continuing education) may be eligible for the Association of Alberta Agricultural Fieldmen Memorial Bursary.

The Association of Alberta Agricultural Fieldmen (AAAF), as an ongoing tribute to active or retired AAAF members who pass away, and in the spirit of continuing education valued by our Association, created the AAAF Memorial Bursary.

  • The bursary is intended for students continuing their education at a College or University.

Students must be enrolled in an agricultural or environmental science program.  There is a $1000 bursary available in each calendar year for each of the 5 provincial regions of the Association of Alberta Agricultural Fieldmen.

An Agricultural Fieldman in good standing with the AAAF must receive your application with all supporting documentation by September 1st of each year.

The Ed Stelmach Community Foundation Scholarship has been created to support graduating high school students in their journey into post-secondary education.

The ESCF is dedicated to assisting Alberta charities - especially those in the greatest need who may not receive the funding they deserve or require. This scholarship is a reflection of that commitment. Geared towards students who may require financial assistance, the scholarship will be given to the applicants who demonstrate perseverance through difficult situations, are committed and involved in their community, and who have clearly determined and outlined their future goals. Three scholarships will be awarded annually, each consisting of $2,750.

In order to apply:
The applicant must be completing Grade 12 at a public or Catholic high school in the following towns/cities: Lamont, Two Hills, Fort Saskatchewan, Ryley, Tofield, Viking, and Vegreville.

Eligibility and application process:

In recognition of the importance of an educated population to the future well-being of rural communities, the RMA established the RMA Post-Secondary Scholarship Program in 1995. The program is designed to encourage rural Albertans to pursue further education, and thereby enhance the ability of these rural residents to make meaningful contributions to their communities in subsequent years. A scholarship in the amount of $1,000 is presented to one successful applicant from each of the RMA’s five districts annually.

Eligibility and Application Procedure:

The Federation Achievement Award was created to recognize deserving students of members across rural Alberta. Four $1,000 awards are handed out at the Federation Annual General Meeting. 

Eligibility and application process:

Five scholarships of $1000 each are available to dependents of members in good standing who will be entering their first year of post-secondary study in either a diploma or degree-granting program. An applicant must be a high school graduate of the previous or current school year and applications must be submitted before the second Friday of February each year.

Eligibility and application process:

Annually the Josephburg Agricultural Society awards three $1500.00 scholarships. These awards are based equally on academic achievement and community involvement.

Selection Criteria:
Children of directors, former directors, permanent employees and members of the Josephburg Agricultural Society are given first consideration, but not exclusively chosen. Academic achievement and community involvement are determining factors.

Eligibility and Application Process:

Each year, MCSnet offers four $1,000 local scholarships to graduating grade 12 students. Eligible applicants must be pursuing a post-secondary education in Computer Science or related studies, and must reside in the MCSnet service area (includes all of Lamont County).
