Applications open for 2023 Nuffield Scholarships
The Nuffield Farming Scholarships Trust (NFST) has launched its annual scholarship programme, aimed at young people between the ages of 22 and 45 from across the UK food and agriculture industries.
With the aim of finding “the next generation of industry leaders”, the programme looks to support an individual’s study into their chosen field and fund their travel overseas. No formal qualifications are required in order to apply.
Nuffield Farming member countries span the globe, with established programmes in Australia, France, Ireland, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Kenya and Zimbabwe. Associate countries also include Brazil, USA, South Africa and Southern Caucasus (Armenia, Georgia and Azerbaijan).
Nuffield Scholarships are directly funded by over 100 businesses across the agriculture and food industries.
Applications for 2023 Nuffield Farming Scholarship are now open online until 31st July 2022 and can be completed by visiting NFST’s website. Those interested can also find more details about the awards online.
