Sustainable agriculture, climate change and technology are the focus of this year’s NFU Mutual Centenary Award for postgraduate students in agriculture.

The annual award pays up to 75% of course fees for students starting a Masters or PhD in Autumn 2014.

Interest students will need to focus on one of these three key areas:

  • Sustainable agriculture and climate change
  • International agricultural development
  • The application of science and innovative technology to the agricultural industry

The award is open to students who have, or are expected to gain, a 2:1 or above in agriculture or a closely related degree, and have already been accepted on a Masters or PhD course in agriculture in the UK.

The closing date for 2014 applications is 30 April. Contact centenary_award@nfumutual.co.uk for further details and an application form.
