Bursary announced for members to attend RASC conference in Canada

The East of England Agricultural Society is delighted to announce the opening of the RASC conference bursary applications. This year the East of England Agricultural Society has openings for two Members to attend the Royal Agricultural Society of the Commonwealth Conference in which takes place in November.

The Bi-annual conference takes place in a different Commonwealth Nation each time and this year the conference is to be held in Edmonton, Canada. The two successful bursary applicants will attend both the next generation conference and the main conference and also receive flights and accommodation as part of the package.

The East of England Agricultural Society supports the continued progression of individuals within the industry and believes that the RASC conference will provide a great source of knowledge for those who receive the Bursary.

The 2016 conference took Cultiv8 members Tom Martin and Amelia Rome to Singapore for the conference, and both have flourished on the knowledge learned at the event. Tom’s trip to Singapore sparked the ‘Facetime a Farmer’ initiative that has swept through the agricultural social media world over the course of the last year and how know been picked up by LEAF.

Bursary applications are open until the 3rd of August. The application process requires the candidate to pitch why they would benefit from the Bursary and the impact it would likely have on themselves and the Society. Applications will be judged by a panel appointed by the East of England Agricultural Society.
