Carman, MB (August 17, 2011) – The Manitoba Pulse Growers Association (MPGA) has partnered with the Assiniboine Committee College to fund the Manitoba Pulse Growers Association Agribusiness Bridging Award.
This award is intended to recognize the academic achievement of a Year I Agribusiness student who is proceeding into Year II of the diploma program at Assiniboine Community College (ACC). The successful candidate must complete Year I and be enrolled in Year II of the diploma course, achieve a 3.0 overall GPA and meet minimum required grades in a selection of courses.

In addition to the ACC Bridging Award, MPGA sponsors two scholarships through the University of Manitoba (U of M). The first scholarship is for a third year student in the Faculty of Agricultural and Food Sciences Degree Program.
