YFC members who are off to university to study an agricultural subject may be able to get financial support thanks to NFU Mutual’s Undergraduate Bursary Scheme.

Leading rural insurer NFU Mutual is offering financial support to four students starting undergraduate courses in agriculture in autumn 2017. The bursaries will provide £3,000 to help with tuition, living or work experience costs over the duration of their course.

Successful applicants will also be supported by NFU Mutual, which provides insurance for over 70% of the UK’s farmers, with work experience, networking and course projects.

NFU Mutual’s Charlie Yorke, who co-ordinates the award scheme, said: “We’re an insurer with over a century’s experience protecting the countryside. As part of our support for the farming community we are want to help encourage students who have the potential to become agriculture’s future leaders..

“This is the third year NFU Mutual has offered the Award, and it’s been great to see how the first group of award winners used the bursary – such as fund extra courses which have increased their skills base and made them more employable.”

The closing date for applications is the 1st October 2017. For more information and to find out how to apply for the bursary visit the website.
