Applications for this award have now closed.

About the Award

It’s a student bursary scheme that provides £3,000 to four students during their course. This goes towards their tuition, living or work experience costs while studying to advance their career. This is the third year we’ve run the Award. It demonstrates our commitment to agriculture, and the passionate young people who want to enhance their skills and knowledge.

If you’re successful, you’ll be asked to tell us what you’ve learnt about the industry during a visit to NFU Mutual. This will help to show how the Award has contributed to your learning.

Who can apply?

To apply, you need to have:

  • Been accepted (or provisionally accepted) on an undergraduate agricultural course in the UK, starting in autumn 2017
  • Element of agriculture or rural business management present on your course, such as modules on farm management or rural marketing
