If you are mid-career, passionate about Canadian agriculture
and 25 or older, this might be the experience of a lifetime for you!
You will be required to travel for a minimum of 10 weeks. There are no prerequisites of education or past awards. It is expected that you make a commitment to using this opportunity to contribute to Canadian agriculture by sharing your work and experiences. Nuffield Scholarships are not for those involved in full-time study, or for the purpose of furthering existing research projects.
You're meeting people who are happy to share what they know. My studies gave me the confidence to propel myself into the next level of business growth. It truly was the experience of a lifetime.”
After my two years the world is smaller, my business is more profitable and the farmers who hear my story are inspired. I can’t say enough about the opportunities that continue to generate through this wonderful network of likeminded passionate people.
The highlight is the people. Every night, every meal, every break you dive deep into a conversation with the people around you in all parts of the world.
