Agriculture in the Classroom Canada:The Scholarship Marketing Success Story
When it comes to marketing your scholarship, you want to ensure that you’re reaching the right students. Oftentimes, different organizations have different target audiences, so employing a targeted marketing strategy is the best way to boost brand awareness and generate quality applications.
In Spring 2022, we worked with Agriculture in the Classroom Canada (AITC-C) to help increase student awareness about the agricultural studies field, as well as market their two scholarships.
The SchoolFinder Group is excellent to work with — they provide quality promotion of scholarships and are highly responsive. We appreciate the opportunity to work with them to promote scholarships that encourage Canadian school-aged students to thinkAG when exploring their future career options!
A featured scholarship listing means your award will display on the main page of ScholarshipsCanada.com.
In this case, AITC-C featured their 2 scholarships for a total of 3 months leading up to the application deadline. DFC was featured for 1 month and G3 for 2 months.
Featured Scholarship: DFC Here for Tomorrow
Featured Scholarship: G3 Grow Beyond
A targeted email campaign means you can reach the exact type of student you’re looking for, based on a variety of parameters that include: age, location, program(s) of interest, citizenship, gender, and more.

- DFC Here for Tomorrow Scholarship: 1 campaign to students and 1 to counsellors
