Nuffield Canada looking for new scholars
By Top Crop Manager
Nuffield Canada is on the hunt for the recipients of its 2019 scholarships.
Up to five $15,000 scholarships are available and applications for the 2019 Canadian Nuffield Farming Scholarships are due April 30, 2018. Application forms can be downloaded from the Nuffield Canada website at www.nuffield.ca.
Nuffield farming scholarships are awarded to Canadians from any aspect of agriculture and agribusiness, with a desire to expand their knowledge, pursue new ideas and share their findings with others for the betterment of Canadian agriculture. Applicants should be in mid-career, between the ages of 25 and 45 (guideline only) with a minimum of five years of agricultural business or farming experience and the management ability travel for a minimum of 10 weeks, with a minimum of six consecutive weeks in one leg of their travel.
Scholars must complete their project within two years of being awarded, producing a written report and presenting their findings to the Nuffield Canada annual general meeting. Canadian Nuffield Scholars are required to participate in the annual Contemporary Scholars Conference, with scholars from around the globe, held in March. Information about Nuffield Canada and the application process is available at www.nuffield.ca.
