The call is open for the Highly Qualified Personnel (HQP) Scholarship Program

Posted on Tuesday, February 4th, 2020

The Highly Qualified Personnel (HQP) Program, supported by OMAFRA and the Food from Thought program, thanks in part to funding from the Canada Research Excellence Fund, provides scholarships for Masters and Doctoral students working in program areas that relate to OMAFRA research priority areas. HQP students participate in specialized workplace-readiness training about business, commercialization and societal interactions with the agri-food system and will also gain practical workplace experience with a government, industry or community partner that connects with the student's research interests and future career goals. 

The 2020 application deadline is February 20, 2020 by 1 p.m. Want to learn more? Attend the information session on Friday, February 7, 2020 in UC 441, or see the HQP Scholarship Program Research Alert.
