Tom Taylor, BSc (Hons) Agriculture with Mechanisation student, has been awarded the Velcourt Arable Scholarship at Harper Adams University.
Tom, 19, from Northampton, Northamptonshire said: “The scholarship will also provide me with a placement opportunity and a strong base to climb and succeed within the arable industry.
“The Velcourt Arable Scholarship will help to support my education and allow me to broaden my knowledge of arable production, not just in UK but also other countries which are not supported by subsidies in the same way as the UK.
“My overall ambition is to succeed within the farm management of a large business such as Velcourt.
“I’d like to thank Velcourt for awarding me with the arable scholarship as well as the placement year. I feel extremely privileged to have been selected for this incredible opportunity by such as highly regarded company.”
