Nuffield Farming scholarship deadline looms

Horticulture professionals and students can win travel grants to explore their fields of interest, but entries must be in by 15th November.

Nuffield Farming Scholarships invite enthusiastic individuals to travel overseas and study topics of their choice in agriculture, land management, horticulture or the food chain.
Subject matter can include nursery and garden retail, adds Cleeve Nursery's Alan Down, who helps promote the scheme.
The Nuffield Farming Scholarship Trust awards around 20 scholarships each year - providing travel and subsistence costs to scholars for a period of eight weeks in return for a written paper and the presentation of study findings at its annual winter conference.
They provide individuals with the unique opportunity to:
  • Stand back from their day-to-day occupation and study a topic of real interest
  • Achieve personal development through travel and study
  • Access the world's best in food and farming, and deliver long-term benefits to UK farmers and growers
To travel in 2012, apply with details of your personal study project. No qualifications are required.

Applications close on 15th November 2011.
