Peter Fleming & Bill Roberts Food & Farm Bursary

Each year The Peter Fleming & Bill Roberts Food & Farm Bursary will be awarded, in the amount of $2,500, to a graduating student pursuing a post-secondary diploma or degree in one of the following disciplines:

  • Geography
  • Agriculture
  • Engineering
  • Business
  • Environmental Science/Studies

The goal is to develop skills, through your studies, that can be applied to areas including: rural planning; agronomy; farm specific studies; environmental studies; food production and/or management. Agriculture and the rural economy are diverse, and how you plan to be part of it is important for this Bursary.

HOWEVER, the intent of the Award is to be for those graduates ultimately wanting to return to PEC and being part of building their community.

The student will have either be living in Prince Edward County or have been raised and schooled in Prince Edward County. Preference will go to a graduating Prince Edward Collegiate Institute student, but any Quinte area student living in PEC may apply.
