All LFA scholarships have conditions for application to that particular scholarship. Please ensure your situation applies to the scholarship being applied for, in order for it to be considered for competition (i.e. Program or college level etc.)

You will need to make a note of your parent’s/guardian’s/grandparent’s Farm Business Registration Number.

Please include a copy of your marks/transcript if possible; part of the evaluation process is an academic accomplishment.

Make sure all portions of the application are completed.

Maintain focus on the questions as they are asked and respond accordingly. Accuracy in completing the questions as printed is important.

Some good resources for information are the local farm publications and any directors or staff of the OFA or LFA. If they cannot answer your questions, they could point you to someone or something, which could. A listing of the LFA Board of Directors is available at lambtonfederation.ca, or contact the LFA office.


You will receive a confirmation email once your scholarship has been received.

Please Note, other than the confirmation email, only the winners will be contacted further.
