Youth Scholarship Fund
The Youth Scholarship Fund has been available for the past several years. A silent auction is held each Annual Convention and the monies raised from the auction determines how many and how much is given out. Young growers or young people interested in the tree fruit industry in Nova Scotia who are under the age of 40 years old and plan to attend an educational event relevant to the industry, can forward a written request by email to the NSFGA office providing the details of the event they would like to attend.
