2023 Recipients

This year we had 2 recipients for The Dauphin Ag 2022 bursary, the recipients were Grace Van Buekenhout and Emma Fox.

Grace has been accepted with direct entry in the food science program in the Faculty of Agriculture and Food Science at the University of Manitoba. "In the fall of 2023 I will begin my post secondary education. I am currently considering my career options. I am hoping to use my food science education to work with CFIA and work with the agricultural societies of Canada to make sure food production is done in the best way possible. "

Emma- My name is Emma Fox and I am a 17-year-old, 5th generation agriculturalist who ranches alongside her parents southeast of Dauphin, Manitoba. I attend the Dauphin Regional Comprehensive Secondary School where I focus my studies on the sciences, serve on the student council as the student body treasurer and their representative to our city’s council.  I am a student-athlete enjoying all types of sport but complete mostly in various levels of Rugby across the province and Canada. I work at our local care home to provide support and encouragement to some of the elderly as a health care aide. My other hobbies include reading, swimming, playing French Horn, raising livestock and studying biology. I have been a part of the Mountain View 4-H Club for 10 years and this year am serving as the Vice President and representative to our regional council. My current plan is to study animal science and then to further my education in medical school. 

Congratulations Grace and Emma, we wish you all the success in your future endeavours. 

The 2024 DAS Bursary will be posted in March
