Two scholarships worth €2,500 each are on offer to students embarking on a third-level agriculture, food or nutrition course.
Aurivo, the globally focused Agribusiness that is headquartered in the North West of Ireland, is inviting applications for its Gaffney & Mulleady Agriculture, Food & Nutrition Scholarship Programme.
It is open to students in Aurivo’s catchment area who are considering a level 7 or level 8 third-level degree course in agriculture, food or nutrition this September.
The scholarships are rewarded to individuals who achieve academic excellence in their Leaving Certificate and to support them in developing careers in agri-related professions.
Pat Duffy - Chairman of Aurivo - said, “The Gaffney & Mulleady Agriculture, Food, & Nutrition Scholarship Programme was established to support enthusiastic students who are interested in agri-related professions.
Aurivo understands the commitment it takes to pursue a career in this field, and we are delighted to play our part in supporting and enabling young people in the North West of Ireland to do so.”
Aurivo established and sponsors the programme in memory of Paddy Gaffney and Sean Mulleady who died tragically in 2013.
The recipients of last year’s awards were Saoirse Fox, from Cloone, Co. Leitrim, who studied a Bachelor of Science in Agriculture and Environmental Management at GMIT and Jack Kirrane, who studied a Bachelor of Science in Agricultural Science at UCD.
Students must complete the scholarship application form no later than 28 June 2019.
