Scholarships

We believe in supporting the future leaders of Ontario agriculture. That's why the CFFO and our District Christian Farmers Associations award over $20,000 in scholarships annually.

The CFFO awards up to $10,000 in scholarships annually to youth studying agriculture and agri-business. Children and grandchildren of CFFO Members can apply to receive one of four $2,500 scholarships.
