The Scholarship

The successful scholarship recipient will receive an award valued at £4,000 for the academic year that they study on campus at the University.

The scholarship will be payable in two equal parts; half to be paid in February 2018 and the balance in May 2018. Payment is conditional on the scholar remaining registered as a full time student at Harper Adams. They must pass all modules of study and submit at least one written report to the Development Trust prior to the receipt of their second payment.

This is a competitive award which will be evaluated on the merit of the submitted application, along with academic achievements to date and interview. The decision of the Organic Farmers & Growers Scholarship Panel is FINAL and they reserve the right to withdraw their award at any time should they feel this action is required.
