The prize package has been sweetened for winners of the annual Alltech Young Scientist programme. Beginning in 2016, the world’s largest university-level competition in agri-science will not only publicly honour the overall champions for their scientific discoveries with trophies and cash awards, but will offer fully-funded PhD and post-doctorate positions to the global undergraduate and graduate winners.
“The Alltech Young Scientist programme has uncovered some of the best and brightest emerging research talent in agri-science 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.

Registration is currently open for the 2016 competition and will close on October 31, 2015. 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 agri-science related sectors. Paper submission may be completed online until December 31, 2015.

Each student’s paper will first compete within their home region of North America, Latin America, Asia Pacific, Europe or Africa. The finalists from all four regions will be invited to attend an all-expenses-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.
