This scholarship was created by Dr. Karl C. Ivarson through a bequest to the Agricultural Institute of Canada Foundation. In establishing this award, Dr. Ivarson wished to support students from his home province of Alberta in their pursuit of studies in agricultural sciences. The first scholarships were awarded in 2013.

CFFAE invites applications for the Karl C. Ivarson Agricultural Scholarship for 2017. This scholarship is open to agricultural science students from the province of Alberta. Students may be enrolled in any post-secondary institution within or outside the province of Alberta. In 2017, two awards will be granted: $10,000 for a Masters student and $16,900 for a PhD student.
