One scholarship will include international work experience, while the other will see a student complete work experience placement at KEENAN’s headquarters.

Alltech and KEENAN are offering two scholarships to students attending Salesian Agricultural College, Pallaskenry, Co. Limerick for the spring 2021 term.

One full scholarship will be awarded to a second-year student in either the Teagasc Advanced Certificate in Dairy Herd Management or Drystock Herd Management that will include international work experience.

The other full scholarship will go to a second-year Teagasc Advanced Certificate in Agricultural Mechanisation student with a work experience placement at KEENAN’s headquarters in Borris, Co. Carlow.

“In 2019, Alltech committed to quality education as part of the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals, and we are proud to support the next generation of agricultural leaders through these scholarships and work experience opportunities,” said Cathal McCormack, country manager of Alltech Ireland.

Derek O’ Donoghue, principal of Salesian Agricultural College said, “Partnering with leading companies in the nutrition and machinery industry enhances our students overall learning experience. Along with building international relationships, this is an excellent opportunity for our second-year students.”
