Following the most unfortunate death of R. Edgar Pye in July 1989, whilst he held the office of President of the Society of Feed Technologists, the Society decided to set up the Edgar Pye Research Scholarship Trust (Registration Charity No. 1004754) to perpetuate Edgar’s memory by the presentation of a Research Scholarship on a regular basis.
The aim is to sponsor a research-based project chosen competitively and it may be in any area of farm animal feeding including animal nutrition and management, feed production and marketing. The project can be undertaken in the UK, abroad or based on travel to study the appropriate subject.
The award available is up to £2500.00.
The Edgar Pye Scholarship Trust is grateful to the sponsors who have helped to make this possible in 2018:
The Research Scholarship is open to anyone who is either studying agriculture or a related subject, or who is already employed in the Animal Feed Industry, and is resident in the United Kingdom or Republic of Ireland.
