KTN sponsors animal science scholarship for early career individuals and students
Posted on 30/03/2020
This year, KTN is sponsoring the BSAS Steve Bishop Early Career Award.
The Steve Bishop Early Career Award is a scholarship aimed at individuals in the early part of their career as an animal scientist. This includes:
- Postgraduate students
- Students who are within two years of graduation with a PhD
- Individuals working in commerce or industry with an equivalent level of experience without necessarily having a PhD
Professor Steve Bishop was a world-renowned scientist. He made an outstanding contribution to the understanding of the impact of genetics on infectious diseases in farm animals.
The award is worth up to £5,000 depending on the project duration. It is for specific short research programmes and/or training opportunities in the UK, or overseas, with a new academic or industrial partner.
The overall aim is to help support and develop a new partnership rather than a piece of work with a current partner/organisation. In some circumstances it may also be used to part-fund projects.
