Eliot Greenfield, from Loweswater, Cumbria, is the new Velcourt Dairy Farm Management scholar at Harper Adams University. 

Eliot, 20, is a second year BSc (Hons) Agriculture student at Harper Adams, in Shropshire. His scholarship provides £3,500 sponsorship in the current academic year plus a guaranteed placement year position with the company. Further funds might be provided for Eliot’s final year, depending on performance. 

The former Cockermouth Secondary School pupil said: “I would like to thank Nick Shorter, Robbie Taylor and Mark Ward for awarding me with the Velcourt Dairy Farm Management Scholarship.  I am overwhelmed to be given this opportunity.
