Nuffield Farming Scholarships – Applications due in by 31st July

If you are between 25 and 45 working in or involved in agriculture, the land based industries or the food chain, have you thought about applying a Nuffield Farming Scholarship? Please note it is not necessary for applicants to have any formal further education since leaving school, you just need to be really keen about what you do.

What does a scholarship do? Every year it enables some twenty people to visit other countries.

A ‘Nuffield’ provides funding, opens doors and creates global opportunities to meet people from across the whole sphere of agriculture, leading farmers, farming entrepreneurs and innovators, agricultural leaders and decision makers, people at all levels of research and development and people in the allied and food industries. Many countries have a similar scheme and their scholars are very willing to assist visiting scholars from the UK.

More than twenty Herefordshire people have had a Nuffield Farming Scholarship, so it is very likely you probably already know one or more of them, it’s a unique opportunity not to be missed, so why not apply to join them.

To find out more about the Nuffield Farming Scholarships, open up the website, just enter Nuffield Farming in your search engine, where you will be able to find out more about it, look at what is involved in applying and be able to gauge the benefits of becoming a Nuffield farming Scholar.

It’s a case of once a scholar always a scholar as the organisation is not just about scholarships, it’s about a life-long association with like minds. The trust holds an annual conference where scholars give a short presentation of their travels and what they have discovered and there are various groups of previous scholars who keep in contact and meet to keep abreast of what is going on it their specific area or sector of the industry.

Applications are due in by 31st July. So start giving it some thought.
