How We Operate

The Nuffield Farming Scholarship Trust Ireland, with the support of 9 sponsors, provides a travel and study bursary to a number of scholars. The scholars are selected following a written application and interview process.

The objective of the scholarship scheme is to encourage the advancement of agriculture and rural development through the promotion of awareness, education and leadership in the Irish agriculture and rural sectors.
