The Saskatchewan Government has announced the recipients of the Saskatchewan Lieutenant Governor Indigenous Scholarship, and the recipient is a scholar from Yellow Quill First Nation.

Jeremy Irvine, a graduate student pursuing a Master of Science degree in Plant Science from the University of Saskatchewan, is the 2024 award winner. Jeremy’s research will focus on the evaluation of yield damage caused by the lesser clover leaf weevil in red clover seed production in Saskatchewan. The information gathered is expected to help reduce input costs for growers and environmental harm caused by redundant pesticide applications.

“Being selected for the Saskatchewan Lieutenant Governor Indigenous Scholarship is an honour and validation of my dedication to academic excellence and research,” Irvine said. “Receiving this prestigious scholarship fills me with immense gratitude, not only for the opportunity it presents, but also for the unwavering support of my friends, family and community – Yellow Quill First Nation. Their encouragement and belief in my aspirations have been a constant strength throughout my academic journey.”
