Nuffield Farming Scholarship opportunity

Some of you will be familiar with the Nuffield Farming Scholarship programme. This is a fantastic opportunity for the right person (anyone under 45) to travel and study a subject of their choice.

This year the Nuffield Farming Scholarship Trust has been very fortunate in securing sponsorship from Malcom Issac who himself was a Nuffield Scholar in 1966. This scholarship is intended to support someone from the horticultural industry and it would be great to see someone from the fresh produce sector taking up this opportunity.

The closing date for the scholarship is 31 July 2015. Here is the link to the Nuffield website which has lots more detail and access to the application process. http://nuffieldscholar.org/

As a Nuffield Scholar myself I can vouch for the value of this opportunity. It definitely has the capacity to change lives.

If anyone wants to have a chat with me about what is involved, I am more than happy to talk you through the process
