Agricultural Educator Awards are specifically designed to help those employed in agricultural education, especially those early in their career, to widen and develop their own technical expertise through study activities either inside or outside the United Kingdom.
In 2016 a total of £25,000 is available for a number of study awards. Normally, these would be up to four weeks duration, but longer/shorter term awards will also be considered. Applications focussing on the application of science and technology in farming which contribute to the sustainability and profitability of agriculture in the UK, as well as improving the future security of our food production, will be especially welcome.
The bursaries are intended to both assist the career prospects of the applicant and also any students for which they will be responsible after their return.
Successful applicants are also made honorary members of The Farmers Club for the duration of the award.
Applicants must at the time of application be actively involved in agricultural education, or in a recognised agricultural establishment in the United Kingdom. Click here for further details. Closing date: Monday 8th February 2016.
