2024/25 Denis Lynn Scholarship is now open

We are pleased to invite applications for the 2024/25 Denis Lynn Scholarship for Sustainable Food Innovation, which was established last year to support the next generation of food innovators.

The Denis Lynn Scholarship is a generous bursary of £20,000 towards tuition fees and living expenses for a student on the Advanced Food Safety Masters degree, within the School of Biological Sciences and Institute for Global Food Security (IGFS), at Queen’s University Belfast.

The MSc Advanced Food Safety programme is delivered by IGFS researchers and focuses on the new and emerging issues threatening food safety and food security, and concentrates on the utilisation of recent developments in analytical approaches to monitor and regulate food integrity, authenticity and security.

The scholarship was launched in 2023 and Jessica Lui (pictured) was its first recipient. The scholarship is available for a further two years – awarded in 2024 and 2025 – and will also include an internship at Finnebrogue in Co. Down and another internationally renowned food producer. There is an opportunity to secure a job with Finnebrogue, subject to successfully completing their MSc.

Closing date for applications for the Denis Lynn Scholarship is 17th March 2024.
