Bursary awards to be named at AGM
Our bursary committee has reviewed all the 2022 applications for OPVG’s three annual bursaries, and the selected students will be announced at the OPVG Annual General Meeting in March 2023. The bursaries include the Ken Epp Memorial Bursary, Jim Witson Memorial Bursary and the OPVG Industry Bursary.
OPVG’s bursary program started in 2001 to support students pursuing a career in the processing vegetable industry and encourage continued growth for this sector of Ontario’s agri-food economy. A total of $203,000 has been awarded in the past.
A heartfelt thanks to the bursary committee for reviewing all the applicants: David Robertson, Bayer Canada; Wilhelmina Waters, TD; Ken McEwan, University of Guelph; Elaine Roddy, OMAFRA; and Michael Denys and Carl Merrick; OPVG.
