Livestock Improvement Patrick Shannon Scholarship Programme:

​Livestock Improvement is a premier supplier of improved germplasm, herd testing, and herd information management services to New Zeland Dairy Farmers.

LIC is keen to contribute to efforts to ensure that a pool of suitable qualified scientists and research associates will be available in the future. For that purpose we offer to develop a relationship with current Honours and Masters students studying mathematics/statistics or bioinformatics to encourage them to complete a PhD with emphasis on Genetics and at the same time develop an interest in a career with LIC. Scholarships can be used to achieve both goals. Thus, LIC will offer honours and masterate scholarships for the 2020 academic year.
