  • Have practical or educational experience in livestock or arable farming, or a particular interest for attending which can be communicated and considered
  • Be available to attend scholars training

  • Scholars should be aged between 22 and 30 and not have attended the conference before.

AGRI Manager Sarah Palmer said: "We know that some young farmers do not feel confident about putting themselves forward for these opportunities but if you know of a worthy applicant, please encourage them to apply for this opportunity. Also, if you're interested in applying but are not sure about what's involved, please contact me for further guidance."

To be considered for a scholarship, please submit your reasons why you should be considered for this great opportunity, include contact details, your YFC membership number and your CV to Sarah Palmer.
