The Melplash Agricultural Society Bursary

Annually the Melplash Agricultural Society offers students who wish to further their education in the field of Agriculture, Horticulture, Forestry or any closely allied topic.  The Bursary was established in 2007 to benefit West Dorset based students.

This year there is specific funding set aside of up to £1,500 to be awarded to a Harper Adams University student.

Those eligible to apply must live within a 12 mile radius of the village of Melplash in Dorset.

Those candidates shortlisted will then be required to provide scholastic and personal references and will be interviewed in late Spring/Summer so that finance can be in place for the next academic year.  The successful candidate is presented with the Bursary at the annual Melplash Agricultural Society Show.   The financial support will be extended throughout the successful students course, provided that they receive satisfactory annual report from his/her university. 

Please note: Deadline for applications is 1 July 2017
