Scholarships exclusive to Harper Adams

Butchers' and Drovers' Charitable Institution Bursary 2021/22

Please note: Applications for this scholarship are now closed, for more information please contact the Development Trust Office.

The Butchers' and Drovers' Charitable Institution Bursary is open to all first or second year students currently studying on a BSc or FdSc Course and enrolled in full-time education in the academic year 2020/21 at Harper Adams University.

You must be able to demonstrate a relevance to the meat and livestock industry either within your chosen area of study or future career plans.

It should be noted that preference will be given for those candidates who have family or employment links with the meat and livestock industry or who have an intention of seeking employment in the industry.

The successful scholarship recipient(s) will each receive a payment of up to £5,000 for the awarding academic year and for each of the remaining academic years of full-time study at Harper Adams University (excluding placement years). For example if you are successful and you are currently a second year BSc student, then you would receive funds in 2022/23, your final academic  year, as 2021/22 is your placement year and is therefore not an academic year

This is a competitive award, evaluated on merit of the submitted application, academic achievements to date and interview. The decision of the BDCI Bursary Panel is FINAL and they reserve the right to withdraw their award at any time should they feel this action is required.
