Industry Bursaries for Loughry Students

This year the sponsors that have shown their appreciation of the future talent that Loughry is developing include: the Bank of Ireland, Cookstown-KARRO Group, Danske Bank, Dunbia, Fane Valley/Linden Foods, First Trust Bank, Irish Farmers Journal, LacPatrick Co-op, Moy Park Ltd, Multi Packaging Solutions, Northern Ireland Food and Drink Association (NIFDA), Tyrone Farming Society, Ulster Bank and Willowbrook Fine Foods. They offered bursaries which were valued between £1,000 and £3,000, worth in the region of £16,000.

Speaking at the event Mr Noel Lavery, Permanent Secretary, DARD praised the companies and organisations who demonstrated their support for the students, saying: “These companies have shown their commitment to investing in the future development of the Agri-food industry by supporting students through their education programmes with financial assistance and offering work placement opportunities.” Higher education is often expensive for students and their families and CAFRE is delighted that the Agri-Food industry is committed to supporting our young managers and leaders of the future through the provision of bursaries.
