THE NUFFIELD Scholarship programme has announced the appointment of twenty-three new Scholars for 2024 – the Trust’s largest ever cohort. Nearly 60% are Farmers and 50% are women.
Each year Nuffield Farming Scholarships are awarded to deserving individuals working in farming, horticulture, forestry or any other countryside and ancillary industry – or are in a position to influence those who do.
The aim is to inspire passion in people and develop their potential to lead positive change in farming and food.
The new Scholars come from a wide range of backgrounds, and will begin their studies next year. They will investigate topics around tea production, goat dairying, cider production, and artificial intelligence. Challenges around sustainability, resilience, climate pressures, and market forces in other UK farming and rural industries will also be explored.
