Post grads: Mutual award could pay 75% of fees

_40711Are you planning to start a postgraduate course in agriculture in Autumn 2017?

If so, then the NFU Mutual Charitable Trust Centenary Award could be just the thing for you.

Launched in 2010 to celebrate the Mutual’s 100th birthday, the award gives annual bursaries to pay up to 75% of course fees for selected post-graduate students in agriculture (Masters or PhD).

Applicants should have, or expect to get, a 2:1 or above in agriculture or a closely-related degree. You'll need to have been accepted or provisionally accepted on a post-grad agriculture course in the British Islands, starting in Autumn 2017. And you'll need the main part of the course to focus on one of the following three areas:

  • Sustainable agriculture and climate change
  • International agricultural development
  • The application of science and innovative technology to the agricultural industry

The judges will be looking for students who are not only excellent academic performers, but committed to the future of agriculture. The closing date for applications is 30th April.
