Applications set to open for Nuffield Farming Scholarships

The Nuffield Farming Scholarships Trust (NFST) has announced that applications for its 2022 scholarships will open on 13th January 2021.

Around 20 scholarships are award each year to applicants working across the food, farming,  horticulture, rural or associated industries. Successful applicants are provided with a substantial bursary to fund travel to study their chosen topic. Additional funding is also available for Scholars to attend the Contemporary Scholar’s Conference, training sessions and other events.

Mike Vacher, director of the Nuffield Farming Scholarships Trust, said: “Nuffield Farming Scholarships provide a unique opportunity within the food and farming industry. Not only do Scholars undertake an in-depth, global study about a chosen topic, but they are also in a unique position of influence to share these findings with the wider agricultural community and show the way forward.

“In light of the uncertainty surrounding travel and other restrictions, the Trust will continue to support Scholars to ensure they are able to make the most of this opportunity and produce the high-quality work that has come to be expected of this experience.”

“This opportunity provides the foundation for Scholars to both succeed in their own business as well as impact the wider industry.

“Nuffield Farming fosters the careful development of future leaders, who will be vital as the industry explores opportunities and meets the challenges that exist outside of the EU.”

“In light of the uncertainty surrounding travel and other restrictions, the Trust will continue to support Scholars to ensure they are able to make the most of this opportunity and produce the high-quality work that has come to be expected of this experience.”

Applications for 2022 Nuffield Farming Scholarships will open on 13th January 2021 via the Trust’s website, www.NuffieldScholar.org, and remain open until the 31st July deadline.

However, when applying for a Nuffield Farming Scholarship, applicants are encouraged to begin the process well ahead of the July 31st deadline. The Nuffield Farming office is able to connect applicants with existing Nuffield Scholars who can provide support and advice about the application process.

For those interested in learning more about the Scholarship and the application process, an informal, non-obligatory introductory session will be held at 6:30pm on 13th January. The event will be hosted by Nuffield Alumni Officer Charlotte Merson and 2019 Scholar Sarah Pick. To register for this free session email charlotte@nuffieldscholar.org.
