Nuffield scholarship applications due April 30

A total of five, $15,000 scholarships are up for grabs through the Canadian Nuffield Scholar program for 2019.

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,” according to Nuffield Canada.

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 ability to travel for a minimum of ten weeks, with a minimum of six consecutive weeks in one leg of their travel.

While applicants are only limited by their imagination, some of the scholarships will be awarded within specific sectors. For example, the Grain Farmers of Ontario scholarship will be awarded to an outstanding individual involved in the Ontario grain industry whose study shows direct benefit to the Ontario grain sector, and the Western Grains Research Foundation scholarship is available to scholars directly involved in the Western Canadian field crop sector, preferably a producer, or an individual actively involved in the sector through extension or research whose research topic will focus on the field crop sector.

Scholars must complete their project within two years of being awarded, producing a written report, and presenting their findings to the Nuffield Canada AGM.

Applications for 2019 Canadian Nuffield Farming Scholarships are due April 30, 2018. Application forms can be downloaded from the Nuffield Canada website at www.nuffield.ca.
