For some young scientists, Alltech has an early Christmas gift. The opportunity to register for the 2016 Alltech Young Scientist programme, the world’s largest university-level competition in agriscience, has been extended until December 31.

Earlier this year it was announced that 2016’s programme would become the first edition to offer fully-funded PhD and post-doctorate positions to the global undergraduate and graduate winners who also receive international recognition, trophies and cash awards.

Students must be nominated by a professor in order to participate and may submit scientific papers on topics such as animal health and nutrition, crop science, agriculture analytical methods, food chain safety and traceability, human health and nutrition and other agriscience related sectors. Paper submission must be completed online by December 31, 2015.

Each student’s paper will first compete within their home region of North America, Latin America, Asia Pacific, Europe or Africa. Finalists from all four regions will be invited to attend an all-expense-paid Alltech Young Scientist Discovery Week in Lexington, Kentucky, USA, where they will compete in the global competition. Each finalist will present his or her paper to a panel of international judges and a live audience during ONE: The Alltech Ideas Conference, May 22-25, 2016. 

“The Alltech Young Scientist programme has uncovered some of the best and brightest emerging research talent in agriscience and Alltech wants these leaders to join our team,” said Dr Pearse Lyons, president and founder of Alltech.

The Alltech Young Scientist programme, now in its 11th year, received more than 8800 student registrations for the 2015 term. For a look at last year’s eight finalists, view this clip.
