It’s that time of year again – when the weather starts cooling off, kids and young adults go back to school and the Brian Knull Memorial Scholarship starts accepting applications!
Every year, CANTERRA SEEDS awards a $1,500 scholarship to one deserving post-secondary student in memory of Brian Knull, a beloved CANTERRA SEEDS Territory Manager, colleague and friend.
The scholarship was created in 2018 by CANTERRA SEEDS and the Knull Family to encourage rural students to continue with their education at a post-secondary institution. To be eligible, the student must be:
- a Canadian citizen,
- an Alberta resident, and
- registered in an undergraduate program at an accredited post-secondary institution.
To enter, visit bkscholarship.com, complete the necessary requirements, and mail or email your application to CANTERRA SEEDS before October 31, 2021.
