Fourteen Brackenhurst agriculture students scoop £6,000 grant awards
Fourteen agriculture students studying at NTU’s Brackenhurst Campus have been awarded nearly £6,000 of financial support from the Education and Personal Development Grant Scheme, run by the Newark and Nottinghamshire Agricultural Society.
The students were invited to the Nottinghamshire County Show on Sunday 12 May to collect their awards.
The scheme offers grants up to £500 for Nottinghamshire residents who are studying agriculture or a directly related subject. Applications are also welcome from those who want to develop their knowledge or experience within agriculture in other ways.
Previous awards have been used to attend the Oxford Farming Conference, purchase tools, pay towards additional training, and attend international congresses.
One student from the University of Nottingham also won an award.
CEO of the Newark and Nottinghamshire Agricultural Society Adrian Johnston said: “In the last 10 years the society has given over £50,000 of grant support to students of agriculture, which we fund through the hire of our facilities at Newark Showground.
“These awards are given in direct support of our charitable purpose; to promote agriculture. It is inspiring to meet these young people entering our industry and a pleasure to help them as they embark on their careers in our crucially important sector.”
