Novus International Inc.'s Novus Scholars program has partnered with Kenya's Egerton University.
The partnership will allow Novus to assist the school in developing its local capacity and support the local feed economy by providing equipment and training. "We have established a repeatable model with our Novus Scholars program that benefits students, professors and our employees," said Dr. Giovanni Gasperoni, executive vice president for marketing and sales. "I have witnessed the growth of these programs. They are encouraging knowledge transfer and developing real employment opportunities for graduates."
The program works with universities around the world to award professors and students who are, or will be, industry leaders in agriculture with scholarships and fellowships.
