Class Application

Form Instructions:

Welcome to the application platform for the advanced agricultural leadership program. You are in the right place if you want to:

  • Make a positive difference in agriculture, food and rural communities.
  • Be inspired into action.
  • Strengthen your leadership skills.
  • Dig deeper into self-analysis.
  • Make life-long friends.
  • Build a varied network of trusted associates.
  • Experience your talents. 
  • Discover your life choices.

This application form is an online fillable form. The form has been divided into pages, with each page saving as you move to the next. As such, each page will need to be completed in its entirety in order to save your data. The form has back, next and logout buttons, making it easy to go back and add or edit any of your answers.

Please note: each question has specific maximum character lengths. After the maximum character length is reached the selection panel will stop reading any additional information. Prioritize your information into the allowable character space.  

If you choose to copy the form into a Word document, please remember the character length. To check character length in Word, highlight the text then click Review in the top menu, and then click Word Count. Use the “characters with spaces” count.
