PhD and Masters Scholarships in Food Sustainability, Safety and Security
Arrell Food Institute works to elevate the importance of discussions around food as a way of improving life. In this, AFI’s efforts are focused on three key themes: transforming food through innovation and science; nourishing communities through increased food safety, security and social cohesion; and increasing the transparency and efficiency of global food networks.
Arrell Food Institute Graduate scholarships are valued at $50,000 per year to support research focused on agriculture and food. The scholarship supplements the position and applicants must find their own advisor at the University of Guelph to support their research project.
We are seeking Masters and PhD students who are not only academically outstanding but also passionately committed to ensuring that future generations are well fed, that diets are nutritious and equitable, and that agriculture is sustainable.
Master’s - $50,000 per year for up to 2 years (6 semesters)
Doctoral - $50,000 per year for up to 4 years (12 semesters)
The scholarship will be applied to the recipient’s student account in three equal installments per year for the duration of the award. In exceptional circumstances, a one semester extension may be awarded, subject to approval by the Arrell Food Institute.
