Over the next two years, $80,000 in scholarship funds will be awarded.

The scholarships will be awarded to sixteen Senior 4-H Youth Leaders from across the countrty.

The scholarship program will focus on educational pursuits in agriculture, climate change and sustainability. 

Gemma Pryor, Senior Director, Canada Impact Team, McDonald's Canada says they wouldn't be who they are today without Canadian farmers, ranchers and growers. 

She points to the fact that 100 per cent of 'McDonald's Fries' come from Canadian potatoes, the burgers are made from 100 per cent Canadian beef, while the eggs in the 
McMuffin are from Canada Grade A eggs.

Shannon Benner, 4-H Canada's CEO says through the generosity of McDonald’s Canada, they have an opportunity to empower youth leaders in achieving their educational goals.

The 4-H Canada website will be updated when scholarship applications open in 2023.
