Postgraduate students set to benefit from NFU Mutual funding #student #GetIn2Ag

The award will offer bursaries to pay up to 75 per cent of course fees for selected students who are starting a postgraduate course (Masters or PhD) in autumn 2016.

 

The initiative was first launched by the NFU Mutual Charitable Trust in 2010 to celebrate the organisation’s 100th birthday and to date 26 students have benefited from bursary payments to help fund their studies.

 

The six awards are open to students who have gained, or are expected to gain, a 2:1 or above in agriculture or a closely related degree, and have been accepted on a Masters or PhD course in agriculture within the UK.

 

To select the students, the award’s judging panel will be looking for applicants who are demonstrate good academia and passionate about making an impact within UK agriculture.

 

In 2015 three students were awarded with a centenary award bursary - Lydia Slack from Derbyshire who is studying an MSc water science, policy and management, University of Oxford; Madeleine Prince from Sheffield studying an MSc Food Security and Sustainable Agriculture, the University of Exeter and Will King from Malmesbury studying an MSc Rural Estate Management, Royal Agricultural University.

 

Prospective postgraduate students who think they may be eligible to apply should contact centenary_award@nfumutual.co.uk to request further details and an application form.
