Alltech will gather thousands of research papers from brilliant young thinkers around the world throughout 2013 to select the next winners of the Alltech Young Scientist Awards.
Registration has opened for undergraduate and graduate students interested in submitting experimental research or scientific review papers for the 2013-2014 competition. Regional winners will receive cash prizes, and eight finalists will be invited to compete for top honours during Alltech’s 30th International Symposium in 2014. The winning graduate and undergraduate students will receive a $10,000 scholarship and a $5,000 scholarship respectively.
Scientific papers submitted may cover topics including veterinary science, animal nutrition, feed technology, sustainability, agricultural management, marketing, environmental science and economics. Papers will be judged by a panel of industry professionals. Registration and paper submission is available online and will close Dec. 31, 2013.
“For Alltech, what could be more important that rewarding young people who are driven by science?” said Dr. Pearse Lyons, president and founder of Alltech. “Every year, more and more students send us their research with hopes of standing out in a crowd of candidates representing countries from around the world. Alltech is proud to provide an avenue for future leaders in diverse fields of science to compete at the highest level.”
Alltech received nearly 8,000 registrations for the international competition in 2012, with the goal of increasing registrants by 50 percent in 2013. Visit here for more information about the Alltech Young Scientist Awards.
