2014 Irish Nuffield Horti/Agri Scholarships Now Open for Application

If you are a forward thinking, progressive individual involved in farming or agri-business, if you want to travel to research a topic which is important to you and if you believe you have what it takes to become a Nuffield Scholar, now is your chance to apply for one of the six 2014 Nuffield Farming Scholarship awards.

“The objective of the Irish Nuffield Farming Scholarship Trust (NFST) is to identify future leaders of Irish Agriculture and facilitate their ambition to bring about meaningful change for the benefit of their community”, Chairman of Nuffield Farming Scholarships Trust Ireland, Bill O’Keeffe said.

Mr O’Keeffe explained that thanks to NFST sponsors, namely, IFA, the Irish Farmers’ Journal, FBD, the Golden Jubilee Trust, The Peter Daly Trust with Dairymaster and LIC, Meat Industry Ireland and Aurivo Co-op up to six deserving applicants will be awarded a travel bursary of €10,000.00. “Successful applicants will first receive some training with fellow-Nuffield Scholars from around the world. After this initial stage, they will travel, including a 6 weeks travel block, , to research their topic of choice, and will be expected to prepare a comprehensive report, to be presented to the Nuffield Farming Scholarship Trust , as well as various other Irish and international agricultural forums,” Mr O’Keeffe said.

“As a Nuffield Scholar myself, I would heartily encourage farmers and agri-business employees to go for it and apply. A Nuffield Scholarship is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to travel, make firm friendships, discover cultures and how the business of agriculture is run the world over, and return personally enriched for the benefit of one’s community,” he said.

Application forms can downloaded from www.nuffield.ie or obtained by emailing exec@nuffield.ie and must be returned by Wednesday 31st July 2013 either by email or online on www.nuffield.ie.
