UK - The Nuffield Poultry Study Group has announced the establishment of a new biennial Nuffield Farming Scholarship Award called the Poultrymeat Scholarship.

This prestigious award, which is open to candidates in the poultrymeat sector, has the support and sponsorship of the three global poultrymeat genetics companies, Aviagen, Cobb and Hubbard Breeders.

Nuffield Farming Scholarships award individuals in the agricultural industry opportunities to travel and study topics of interest to their sector. Through the scholarship programme the Nuffield organisation nurtures the leaders and innovators of the future. Scholarships make an invaluable contribution to both personal and professional development, helping advance careers, business and industry.

With the help of Aviagen, Cobb and Hubbard Breeders, Nuffield will be providing a bursary on a biennial basis to enable new poultry meat scholars to travel anywhere in the world to further knowledge, explore new ideas and meet influential business contacts.

The objective of the Nuffield Farming Scholarships is to lead positive change in agriculture by inspiring passion and potential in people.

Speaking on behalf of the Nuffield Poultry Study Group, current Chairman Steve Pritchard said; “The Poultry Study Group is delighted to establish the Poultrymeat Scholarship in partnership with Aviagen, Cobb and Hubbard Breeders.

“Today agriculture is a global business and this scholarship sets up the ideal environment for people with a passion to develop new ideas and opportunities that can be taken from all corners of the globe.

“We expect scholars to return from their studies with new thinking, thought provoking solutions and innovative practices that can be applied to the benefit of themselves and their industry.”

With a new application deadline this year of 31 July 2012, awards are open to people working in farming and ancillary industries or are in a position of influence. Applicants must be UK residents, have spent at least two years working in the industry in the UK, and be between 22 and 45 years of aged at the application date.
