By Adnews Staff
McDonald's Canada and 4-H Canada have launched a new program called the “National Youth Scholarship” intended to provide support to the next generation of Canadian farmers. The national program will provide $80,000 in scholarship funding over two years to 16 4-H youth members seeking to pursue educations in agriculture and sustainability. McDonald's Canada will also become a sponsor of the 4-H Canada Leadership Awards.
“McDonald's Canada wouldn't be who we are today without Canadian farmers, ranchers and growers” said Gemma Pryor, senior director of the impact team at McDonald's Canada. “This new National Youth Scholarship program in partnership with 4-H Canada will help advance educational pursuits in agriculture across Canada and help support the next generation of Canadian farmers.”
