    AEA logo

    Agricultural Engineers Association (AEA) Scholarship

    Scholarship open to final year MEng and BEng Agricultural Engineering students offered by the Agricultural Engineers Association.

    “On behalf of the AEA and its members, we are delighted to have awarded Sean Whiteway the first ever AEA Scholarship. We are thrilled to have found such a talented individual and potential champion for the sector and look forward to working closely with Sean to show the next generation how exciting and rewarding a career in Agricultural Engineering can be. Sean demonstrates the huge wealth of talent that we have in our industry and is a great example of the kind of person we are looking to attract.”

    “I would like to thank the AEA for the awarded scholarship, and I am very much looking forward to the future with the AEA. I am excited to be involved with the promotion and development of the social media presence of the industry and the further opportunities that will arise with the scholarship. The achievement has not only improved my confidence, but it goes to show that you don’t have to be from an agricultural background or a farm to succeed in the industry. I hope in the future that more people from outside the industry will give the career pathway a go and enjoy an amazing future job sector.”

    McConnel Scholarship

    “Firstly, I am extremely honoured to be this year’s recipient of the Alamo Group McConnel scholarship, and I would like to take the opportunity to thank you for your generous financial support towards my project in helping sustainable farming be more efficient. Receiving the Scholarship, I will be able to further my research and development on my interrow weeding project by designing and testing a prototype. Your generosity is allowing me to make my goals and dreams of becoming a successful engineer come a reality.
    This opportunity has also allowed me to develop personal skills and to put into practice everything that I have learnt so far during my time at Harper Adams University. I have massively built on my confidence skills, approaching companies to ask for their opinions on certain aspects of the Project, or even getting to the stage I have done, has been a massive achievement for myself which I am very proud of but I wouldn’t have been able to do it without the support of Harper Adams and The Alamo Group. I definitely feel more prepared and experienced leaving University with the extra experiences I have had working with different professionals on this project.”

    Charlie Harvey
    BEng/BEng Hons Agricultural Engineering - McConnel

    Spearhead Scholarship

    “Receiving the Alamo Group Scholarship has helped me with my expenses while studying and has also been a great benefit to me by allowing me to develop my practical skills and broaden my theoretical knowledge outside of University.  For example, in my spare time I restore cars and the funding has allowed me continue this and has helped me to gain a wide range of practical experience which I feel has really helped me throughout my time at university and on placement.   Receiving this award will also be an excellent addition to my CV and give prospective employers confidence in my abilities. I would like to thank my sponsor for the opportunity to apply and the experience it has given me.”
