PhD Funding from Perry Foundation - Welcome

What does the Perry Foundation do?

Perry Foundation is a registered UK Charity with the objectives of promoting education and research  connected with agriculture or food production for the benefit of the public

How do we do it?

Perry Foundation allocates most of its income to funding postgraduate PhD studentships intended to be of benefit to UK agriculture, but also grants smaller awards for other relevant projects
