HSA Student/Trainee Scholarships

Academic year 2019
Amount Up to £2,400

Overview

Dorothy Sidley award for Advances in Animal Welfare during Transport, Marketing & Slaughter

Established in 1986 as a memorial to the late Miss Dorothy Sidley, General Secretary to the HSA for 48 years, the HSA Student/Trainee Scholarships provide up to £2,400 to enable students or trainees in the industry to carry out a project which is clearly aimed at improving the welfare of food animals in markets, during transport or at slaughter.

Over 50 Scholarships have been granted since the award’s inception, supporting student research across a diverse range of topics, from investigating the welfare of sheep during sea transport to investigating links between pre-slaughter handling of cattle and meat quality.

The scholarships exist to encourage those with an interest in research and careers which fall within the remit of the HSA. Applicants are welcomed from students and industry trainees registered at universities or establishments in the UK and those registered outside the UK with a UFAW/HSA University Link person. The project may be carried out as an integral part of a student's coursework over an academic year or during the summer vacation.

Closing date: Thursday 28 February 2019.

"SI-UK has been a crucial part of my UK journey. They assisted me in obtaining my bachelor's degree in August 2019 and now, they've aided me in securing admission to a top design university in London for my master's. The counselors at SI-UK offer personalised support to each applicant, helping us in each and every step including the final stage of obtaining our CAS letter once we receive the offer."

"Last year, I reached out to SI-UK, Jaipur for my Master’s journey, and it has been an incredibly fulfilling and successful experience. From guiding me through the application process to assisting with letters of recommendation and statement of purpose, and even following up with universities, SI-UK provided comprehensive support at every step of the journey. They went the extra mile, assisting with admissions, fee processing, accommodation arrangements, visa guidance, and coordination on medical checkups. I firmly believe that my admission to the University of Birmingham wouldn't have been possible without SI-UK. I highly recommend SI-UK to anyone seeking admission to a UK or Ireland university."

In September, I sought assistance from SI-UK for my studies in the UK, with a planned intake for January 2023. With the support of my counsellor who made exceptional efforts, I smoothly navigated the application process which culminated in the timely acquisition of my UK student visa hassle-free. I wholeheartedly endorse SI-UK to fellow students aiming to pursue their dreams of studying in the UK. Thank you!
