The Cause: Create new Agriculture Technology Student Scholarships

Olds College is excited to offer two new programs in Agriculture Technology, including the Precision Agriculture - Techgronomy Diploma and Agriculture Technology Integration Post-Diploma Certificate. In support of our new Ag Tech programs, and our commitment to keeping post-secondary education affordable, proceeds from this year’s event will go toward creating new Ag Tech Student Scholarship(s) that will reduce financial barriers and help students realize their full potential. The Ag Tech student award will be available for students who have proven academic excellence and financial need. With your support, Olds College will continue to provide students a high-tech, hands-on education that lays the foundation for solving real-world problems in farming, food and land.
