The Irish Grassland Association was founded in 1946 by a group of like minded individuals who saw a need to advance and spread the knowledge of modern grassland management in Irish farming.
Since its foundation, the Irish Grassland Association (IGA) have worked alongside the most progressive individuals in the farming, research, advisory and agri-industry sectors for the betterment of Irish grassland farming. This relationship has been significant in bringing Irish grassland technology to the forefront as an international science.
The Irish Grassland Association awards student bursaries to support travel to conferences or events deemed to be of benefit to students undertaking postgraduate studies in grassland or grass-based livestock systems research in Ireland. A maximum of two bursaries of up to €500 each will be available in 2016.
Applications are invited from members and non-members of the Irish Grassland Association and must be received at least two months prior to the money being required. Interested persons can apply for the bursary by completing the attached application form.
