De Lacy Sponsor Precision Agriculture Scholarship for Students in the United Kingdom
Students Could Win a £1,500 Scholarship!
De Lacy Executive is please to sponsor the Farms.com Precision Agriculture Scholarship in the United Kingdom. (Scholarships are also available to US and Canadian students.) The value of the scholarship is approximately £1500.
"We are quite proud to sponsor this scholarship, organised by our Canadian parent, Farms.com," says De Lacy Executive Recruitment Managing Director, Stuart Goodinson.
"Ag tech and its impact on agriculture cannot be understated, and it shows our commitment to advancements in agriculture. The entries must push precision agriculture forward with a brilliant idea."
Deadline for scholarships entries is June 30, 2023.
When preparing scholarship entries, students need to remember that the ideas will need to be practical and appealing to farmers, because farmers will be voting on the concepts they believe are the most worthy and practical. A panel of judges determines the top entries in each country, but it is farmers who vote for the scholarship winners.
2023 Scholarship entrants are encouraged to focus on environmental and cost saving benefits to farmers. "This year, with increases in input costs, those who practise precision agriculture techniques will undoubtedly be voting for scholarship entries that will have financial benefits for producers," says Goodinson.
Reducing on-farm waste, reducing on-farm costs (increasing on-farm profits), and reducing farming's footprint on the environment — students who are passionate about any of these topics and who recognise the importance of agriculture are invited to enter the Farms.com Precision Agriculture Scholarship Contest.
As in previous years, scholarship entries can be made by any student studying in any field, not just agriculture. This means students may be pursuing studies in fields such as robotics, AI, engineering, environmental science, etc.
Students are invited to submit their research/thesis or new idea regarding precision agriculture, via a social media video (Twitter and Facebook). The video should be less than 2-minutes in length and include the student or students first name(s). Entries should include the hashtag #PAG23scholarship.
