The object and purpose of the Trust is to advance the education of the public in all aspects of agriculture and farming by providing grants for training and research.
In this context, agriculture and farming include the relevant sciences and practical crafts involved in farming and land management, and also in any ancillary trades, together with nature conservation.
The Trust was formed on 11 October 1990 following the closure of the Chadacre Agricultural Institute, which had been founded by the First Earl of Iveagh and created by Deed of Trust and Constitution in July 1920.
The Trust is run by a Body of Governors, chaired by the Earl of Iveagh, who meet quarterly to assess grant applications and allocate funding.
Grants are provided on a competitive basis to such persons as the Governing Body shall think fit to enable them to research or study the theory or practice of agriculture and farming, and related subjects.
Grants are awarded for relevant diploma, certificate, degree, and higher degree courses.
Grants are given only to individuals who are not eligible for State-funding.
The application forms provided by the Trust require full details of the course, its duration and cost, and a curriculum vitae including the education and employment records of the applicant.
Applicants MUST reside in Suffolk, Norfolk, Essex or Cambridgeshire and be accepted or provisionally accepted for training or study in agriculture or a related subject.
