The OYF Memorial Scholarships were established in memory of the late Martin Streef, president of Streef Produce Ltd., a family-run fresh fruit and vegetable business in Woodstock Ontario, to help future generations of Canadians pursue their passion for agriculture.
In 1996, Streef was recognized as both Ontario’s and Canada’s Outstanding Young Farmer. He died in April 2008.
The Future of Ag Scholarship
The Future of Agriculture Scholarship has been developed by the Saskatchewan Outstanding Young Farmers to promote aspiring students who are passionate about Agriculture. This scholarship will be awarded annually to two individuals pursuing post secondary education in agriculture.
Two $1,000 scholarships are awarded annually. One scholarship is awarded to an individual entering post secondary education from high school. The second scholarship is awarded to an individual who has already completed at least one year of post secondary study.
Open to any individual in Saskatchewan pursuing post secondary education leading to a diploma or degree in agriculture.
