Arrell Scholars

Arrell Food Institute provides graduate students the opportunity to engage in an experiential learning program that will prepare them to be leaders in the agri-food sector and address key agriculture and food challenges.

Arrell Scholars receive:

  • Workplace ready training
  • Applied learning opportunities to connect with industry and non-academic partners in the agri-food sector
  • Opportunities to work collaboratively with industry leaders through these partnerships on mutually beneficial projects
  • Opportunities to develop foundational skills in communication, teamwork and project management.

Unique graduate opportunities are available for incoming graduate students through the Arrell Graduate Scholarships.
