Harper Adams University students beginning their search for a placement for next year are being given an opportunity to apply for the Rabobank Scholarship – the highest value award offered by the University’s Development Trust.
The successful recipient will receive funding provided by Rabobank valued at £18,000 over two academic years, and a one-year paid work placement with Genus ABS.
The scholarship opportunity is ideal for anyone looking to develop a career with a world leading bovine genetics company dedicated to innovation. During their placement year the scholar will gain experience in a variety of areas, including sales, service roles, group presenting and marketing, as well as some opportunities to represent the company at technical events.
Genus ABS’ Cornerstone Manager Sally Thomasson said: “Genus ABS are honoured to be involved with such a prestigious scholarship opportunity in conjunction with Rabobank and Harper Adams University. We are thrilled to be embarking on our third year of this collaboration.”
Rabobank’s Sustainability & Communications Director Rishi Sethi said: “Rabobank is proud to partner with Genus for a third consecutive year to offer this flagship scholarship at Harper Adams. This is a great opportunity which includes an incredible industry placement with Genus and we wish all students applying, the best of luck.”
From Friday 9th October eligible students will be able to log into the Online Launch here to find out more about Rabobank, Genus and this fantastic opportunity, which is exclusive to students at Harper Adams University. The deadline for student applications is 12:00hrs on Wednesday 28 October.
