Bob Ross Memorial Scholarship

September 6, 2017




Applications due September 15 for the 

Bob Ross Memorial Scholarship! 


Applications are now being accepted for the Robert L. Ross Memorial Scholarship, which gives a Canadian farmer the chance to attend the Canadian Total Excellence in Agricultural Management (CTEAM) program.  


The CTEAM program, run by Agri-food Management Excellence (AME), is the only national farm management program helping Canada's farmers use their own farm data to create a business strategy and business plan specific to their operation. 


Robert (Bob) Ross was instrumental in guiding the CTEAM program, inspiring and encouraging farm management excellence across Canada through his leadership and passion for the agricultural community. Bob fought a courageous battle with cancer, passing in March 2014.


As a tribute to his passion, leadership and legacy, Agri-Food Management Excellence, Farm Management Canada, Family Farms Group and the Ross Family, established the Robert L. Ross Memorial Scholarship program, rewarding one Canadian farmer with the opportunity to participate in the CTEAM program and continue on a path towards excellence, as inspired by Canada's leading experts and a one-of-a-kind support network of peers and colleagues.


One scholarship of $11,500 CAN is available to be applied towards tuition and travel.  The successful applicant can choose to attend CTEAM starting in December 2017.


The deadline for scholarship applications is Sept. 15, 2017.


Applicants must be more than 21 years of age and possess passion and devotion to excellence in farm business management. See the application for a complete list of requirements.


The winner will be notified by September 30th, 2017 and will be publicly announced at the Agricultural Excellence Conference Banquet in Ottawa, Ont., on November 22, 2017.

The application must be received by email to or by mail to Agri-Food Management Excellence, R.R.1, Donalda, AB, T0B 1H0
