Scholarships available for Breeder, Broiler and now also the Hatchery Module of EMEAA Production Management School

Aviagen EMEAA Young Person Scholarship

EDINBURGH, Scotland. – The Aviagen® UK Next-Gen Scholarship saw a successful first year, with the two inaugural winners attending the 2022 Breeder and Broiler Modules of the Europe, Middle East, Africa and Asia (EMEAA) Production Management School in Edinburgh. This year, the company has added a Hatchery Module scholarship, opening up new learning opportunities in yet another discipline of poultry management. All three modules offer a unique School experience, enabling up-and-coming industry talent to start a longstanding connection with the Aviagen team, engage in knowledge-sharing, and take advantage of networking-building opportunities. Scholarship recipients also have the chance to attend other UK industry events.

UK poultry professionals 35 years or younger, who have a passion for poultry and a desire to further develop their knowledge are encouraged to apply for the Hatchery and Incubation Management Module before the deadline of March 3.

To find out more and to submit your application, please visit the Aviagen website page and stay tuned for more application details for the Breeder and Broiler module.

Aviagen UK Head of Sales and Technical Stuart Thomson commented on the importance of the Next-Gen scholarship. “We are passionate about encouraging and inspiring our next generation of poultry people. The future of our industry depends on them, and we want them to have this opportunity to start an exciting learning journey with their industry colleagues and tutors.”
