Under the umbrella of the Nuffield Farming Scholarships, prospective scholars can apply on line on www.nuffieldscholar.org.

The Trehane Trust offers study travel awards each year and encourages all those, aged between 25 and 45 and with an interest in any part of the dairy chain, to apply. Applicants have to submit a topic related to the dairy industry that they would like to study and one which, through their improved knowledge and experience, would contribute to the UK dairy industry.

Successful scholars are provided with travel and subsistence costs and are expected to commit eight weeks to the study, which might be in one block or smaller blocks. They have to report their findings in writing and at the Nuffield Farming Conference and the Trehane Trust Annual Scholars' Dinner.

Recent Trehane Scholars have looked at the removal of barriers to large scale dairying, generic marketing of milk and consumer attitudes to milk, family farm succession and cow comfort, nutrition and performance.

"We want applicants from all sectors of the dairy industry," said Trehane Trust Secretary Simon Bates.

"Possible areas for study might include consumer trends, dairy product processing and packaging, environmental issues and milk production on farms. Our awards are for the development of knowledge in the dairy sector in the widest sense."
