Harper Adams and Masstock Arable are offering a postgraduate degree scholarship worth £4,500.
The opportunity gives the successful applicant the chance to study without the burden of course fees, plus practical work experience and even the possibility of a structured career path with agronomy-led input supplier Masstock.
It provides an insight and experience in all aspects of modern arable supply business – agronomy, product management, environmental stewardship, advanced arable research and innovative information transfer.
Current scholar, 23-year-old Graham Poole from Graignamanagh in Ireland, says: “Both the financial support and the continual help I have received since winning the scholarship has been a great help to my success within the course and has opened many future career opportunities for me within the industry.
“Having contact with a well-known company such as Masstock, within the arable sector, has been very interesting and helpful.”
Masstock business manager Nigel Francis says: “If you believe that the hugely important business of crop production and agronomy is a role you’d be interested in, please consider the Masstock Scholarship – it could lead to an enjoyable, rewarding and life-long career.”
This scholarship is available to UK residents considering the postgraduate Crop Protection and Agronomy course at the University College in Shropshire.
