Lawyers to sponsor agri-tech scholarship

4 April 2014

Canterbury law firm Tavendale and Partners and Lincoln University have announced a postgraduate scholarship to support applied knowledge and innovation in agri-tech.

The $6500 scholarship will be awarded annually to a postgraduate student studying at Lincoln University and specialising in the invention and application of smart agricultural technology.

The first scholarship will be available for the second semester of this year and then annually after that. 

Mark Tavendale, director of Tavendale and Partners, said the firm was delighted to support the initiative, given research played a critical role in the understanding of farming issues and opportunities.

The firm also wanted to support an industry and academic programme that contributed to expanding the body of knowledge for New Zealand’s most important domestic and international industry, he said.
