How agricultural students can win bursaries of €1,000 each, for third level study
The Irish Hereford Breed Society (IHBS), in collaboration with Slaney Foods International and Lidl Ireland, are to award five bursaries of €1,000 each, for third level study.
The five successful applicants will be announced at the National Ploughing Championships in September. Speaking at the launch, Willie Branagan, Irish Hereford Chairman said: "Given the outstanding success last year, which was the first year of the programme, all the supporters are keen to further build on that this year and into the future"
To be in with a chance of winning one of these bursaries, candidates should submit an assignment entitled: Ireland's Green Grass - Our Pot of Gold at the End of the Rainbow. Discuss (maximum 2,000 words) with their name, address and contact number clearly displayed on their assignment, by e-mail no later than Friday 25th August 2017 to: firstname.lastname@example.org
The five winners from last year have been enjoying their time at college while furthering their agricultural education. It is expected that this year's competition will once again create wide interest from prospective and aspiring agricultural students wishing to go to agricultural college or study agriculture at third level in the Republic of Ireland this coming autumn.
Last year's winners were: Paraic Ryan , Sixmilebridge, Co Clare; Clem Rossiter, Bannow, Co Wexford; Nicole Keohane McCarty, Kinsale, Co Cork; Michael Kennedy, Stradbally, Co Laois; Hannah Quinn Mulligan , Croom, Co Limerick.
