A travel and subsistence bursary worth £7000 is being offered by the Nuffield Farming Scholarships Trust to enable the organisation’s 2017 scholars to undertake study and research tours wherever in the world they wish.
“Not only does the Scholarship provide generous financial support, but training, worldwide contacts, briefing at a national level, attendance at an international conference and other priceless lifetime experiences,” said Nuffield Farming director, Mike Vacher (pictured above).
He also said that a Nuffield Scholarship “lends itself to motivated individuals who have passion for the rural and agricultural industries, aged between 22 and 45, and who want to broaden their horizons through study and overseas travel across an 18-month period”.
Applicants must have been involved in either farming, food, horticulture, rural or associated industries for the past two years, and anticipate remaining in the industry. No academic qualifications are required.
