Agricultural scholarships

In other UCD news, last month, two students studying agricultural science in their third-level education have been presented with awards after securing places on Aurivo’s ‘Gaffney & Mulleady Agriculture, Food & Nutrition Scholarship Programme’.

Headquartered in the north-west of Ireland, Aurivo presented the awards to Dylan Cronin of Four Mile House, Co. Roscommon, and Niamh Meehan from Ballindine, Co. Mayo.

Two scholarships, each worth €2,500, were awarded as part of Aurivo’s programme which aims to recognise and reward academic excellence and support young achievers who wish to develop careers in an agri-related profession.
