Arrell Graduate Scholarships
The Arrell Food Institute at the University of Guelph is now accepting scholarship applications for students entering a graduate program in the Summer 2018, Fall 2018 or Winter 2019 semesters. The Institute is seeking emerging scholars who are not only academically outstanding but also passionately committed to ensuring that future generations are well fed, that diets are nutritious and equitable, and that agriculture is sustainable. These scholarships are supported through the Arrell Family Foundation’s generous gift to the University of Guelph, and are valued at $50,000/year for 2 years (master’s students) or 4 years (doctoral students).
As a complement to their graduate research, successful Arrell Scholars will provide leadership within multi-disciplinary teams of graduate students, who will work with community, government and industry partners, and University of Guelph experts linked to the Arrell Food Institute, to address global food issues.
In order to be considered for this opportunity, prospective students must submit both a scholarship application AND a complete application for admission to a graduate program at Guelph no later than December 15, 2017 February 28, 2018 (deadline extended).
