North Yorkshire students receive poultry industry scholarships
2:50pm Friday 21st February 2014 in News
TWO Northallerton students have received scholarships to help them pursue careers in the poultry industry.
The British Poultry Council Scholarships, offered at Harper Adams University, in Shropshire, make up to £3,500 available to chosen students for up to two academic years. They also provide a guaranteed placement within a company sponsoring the scholarship.
Kate Chapman, 20, from Northallerton, a second year student studying for a degree in nutrition and well-being, has been awarded a scholarship by Faccenda, which supplies fresh chicken products. She will complete her placement at the company.
Jennifer Costello, 20, also from Northallerton, is a second-year undergraduate studying Animal Health and Welfare. She has received backing from Gressingham Foods and as a result will be given the opportunity to learn about speciality poultry production.
Tom Heseltine, 22, from Skipton, was selected as a Faccenda scholar in 2012 and has just returned to the Shropshire-based university to complete his studies after a placement with the group.
