Other Bursaries & Scholarships

Mountain View County has many community partners that offer area students scholarship and bursary opportunities. Below is a listing of some of the scholarships/busaries that are available.

(Please be advised that this is not a complete list of scholarship or busary opportunities available.)

Agricultural Funding

Mountain View County recognizes the need for funding Agriculture Related Projects to serve the needs of the County's Agricultural population. The Agricultural Service Board (ASB) has a grant program for Agricultural Related Projects that support Agricultural development through education, youth engagement, events and other related projects. This funding is available to groups, associations or non-profit societies that have been in existence for at least two years and operate within Mountain View County.

Requests must be made in writing and include a statement describing the Agricultural related project and the benefit it will provide. The approved funding may be used for education, supplies, contracted services, scholarships, sponsorship, equipment, installation and site preparation.

All funding applications will be forwarded to an ASB Meeting for review for funding consideration. Additional information and/or a presentation may be requested. Please click the below links for more information.

Requests for Agriculture Related Project Funding must be made in writing to the Agricultural Service Board at Mountain View County, Postal Bag 100, Didsbury, Alberta T0M 0W0.

Once the annual approved budget is spent for Agriculture Related Projects no more projects can be funded for that budget year, therefore please submit your project fund request prior to March 9, 2018.
