Pig Industry Scholarship

This programme is now in its eighth year. It was developed by AHDB, the NPA allied industry group (AIG) and Harper Adams University in 2012 and is managed by a steering group of industry and university representatives and chaired by the NPA’s AIG chairman, Hugh Crabtree.

The Pig Industry Scholarship has seen 29 students spend their placement year within the pig industry, with many finding employment with their placement companies after graduation.

For students, the scholarship provides a clear route into the pig industry and showcases the dynamic nature and variety of roles available throughout the supply chain. For businesses, it offers first access to a huge pool of talent and an opportunity to appraise students during, what is effectively, a year-long interview. It means relationships can form between students and businesses early in their studies, leading to a continued interest and desire to remain in the industry.
