- The AUCC is pleased to announce the following Awards program: “ADVANCING A NATIONAL DIALOGUE” AWARDS – Canadian Agri-Food Policy Institute.
This award program is open to students across Canada who: -are Canadian citizens or permanent residents; -are pursuing graduate studies in the schools of agricultural science, food science, nutrition science, environmental science and/or economic studies at a Canadian University.
The Canadian Agri-Food Policy Institute (CAPI) is an independent, non-partisan policy forum that addresses mid to long-term policy issues of significance to the agri-food sector. CAPI has identified three major themes on which to focus its work: food and wellness, sustainability, and viability. The Institute is focused on stimulating a national dialogue on agriculture and agri-food issues by addressing the policies that will enable Canada’s agri-food sector to thrive in the domestic and global agri-food marketplace. CAPI’s objective includes developing policy ideas that provide future options for the framework agreement developed by federal, provincial, and territorial governments, known as Growing Forward.
The Awards Program, “Advancing a National Dialogue,” seeks out fresh ideas from graduate students for policies or models that will enhance Canada’s competitiveness in the emerging agriculture and agri-food world. This initiative has been made possible through the support of Farm Credit Canada (FCC).
These awards are available to candidates who are studying at the graduate level.
Number of Awards: Three (3).
Value: One award of $10,000 CAD, non-renewable and two awards of $5,000 CAD.
Deadline Date: March 30, 2012.
