Plant Health Undergraduate Studentships

Please note that applications for our 2019 studentships programme have now closed.

 

We worked with plant scientists to create nine excellent projects that address major plant health challenges identified by the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra).

We are grateful to Defra, BSPP, N8 AgriFood and the David Colegrave Foundation for funding this programme.
