A student from agricultural college Harper Adams has been awarded with a scholarship at Northern Irish company Moy Park, as part of the British Poultry Council Scholarship Scheme. 

Emily Hughes from Shropshire, a first-year agri-food marketing student, was awarded the scholarship from poultry processor Moy Park, which includes a bursary and a 12-month placement with the company.

“Having supported the British Poultry Council Scholarship Scheme at Harper Adams University for the last three years, we know how enthusiastic and dedicated its agri-food students are,” said Moy Park’s head of talent and organisational development Katharine Strain.

“Moy Park is committed to nurturing talent and offering outstanding training and development opportunities, so we are delighted to award this year’s scholarship to Emily and look forward to welcoming her to the agriculture team when her placement begins this summer.”

The scholarship programme is now in its sixth year and recognises high-calibre first- and second-year students studying agriculture or food production. The scholarship offers candidates with hands-on experience within the industry, and contributes towards tuition fees.

Hughes will be provided with the opportunity to learn about various aspects of the industry, including flock monitoring, biosecurity procedures and animal welfare, and will have the chance to visit and work in some of the firm’s facilities.
