Agricultural engineering is increasingly IT-focused and the Douglas Bomford Trust is keeping pace

Top tips:

  • The trust’s funding is not just for postgraduates in engineering departments but for all those whose work touches on agricultural engineering and technology, including sustainable food and technology systems.
  • Research the trust before applying; its remit is broad but specific.
  • Projects with good value for money that are realistic in their objectives will stand a fighting chance of success.
  • Capacity building is part of the trust’s remit so grantees can expect mentorship if they are successful.

The Douglas Bomford Trust is an agricultural charity which places a special emphasis on supporting researchers at the start of their careers, particularly at postgraduate level.
