“The privilege of a Nuffield scholarship was an amazing opportunity to learn from farmers around the world,” added Anna Bowen, dairy farmer and 2021 Nuffield Farming Scholar.

“I saw new approaches to dairy farming that I was able to bring back to my own business as well as share with the rest of the UK industry. I encourage anyone with a topic they are passionate about and an open mind to consider applying." 

Applications are open online until July 31 2024.
