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.

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.
To apply, forward your application to Lamont County's Agricultural Fieldman at email@example.com.
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.
