FMC India, an agricultural sciences company, recently signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the Punjab Agricultural University (PAU) in Ludhiana, one of the country’s premier agriculture universities. The MoU was for a collaboration for FMC’s multi-year scholarship programme for renowned agricultural schools in eight Indian states. The idea is to promote agricultural talent.

The MOU was signed in the presence of Dr. Sandeep Bains, Dean, Post Graduate Studies, and other Directors, Deans, and Heads of various departments of the university by Dr. Anandakrishnan Balaraman, Director, Research & Development at FMC India, and Dr. Shammi Kapoor, The Registrar, PAU.

FMC will award four scholarships each year to Punjab Agriculture University students pursuing doctorate and master’s degrees in agricultural sciences under the terms of the agreement. FMC will collaborate with the university to identify and develop the brightest students’ interest in science and research. 50% of the scholarships have been designated for female candidates to encourage women to pursue careers in agricultural sciences and research. The scholarships apart, FMC will strengthen its long-standing collaborative research efforts and ongoing strategic alliances with the university.

“Scholarships such as the FMC Science Leaders Scholarship Programme will significantly aid in the development of futuristic sustainable agricultural technologies by motivating the young innovative minds of scholars in institutions. Involving industry experts as mentors will improve students’ skill sets and enable them to make promising contributions to the country’s growth,” said the Registrar of PAU.”
