Final call for horticulture scholarship applications
The David Colegrave Foundation is urging horticulture students to take advantage of available funding
13 January 2022
With just two weeks left to apply for a scholarship, the David Colegrave Foundation (DCF) is urging students to take advantage of available horticulture funding.
DCF has awarded almost £100,000 over the last ten years towards study tours, work placements, college tuition, accommodation fees, books, equipment, and extra training courses.
This year there are nine scholarships to apply for, including a new Brian Crosby scholarship worth £1,500 for horticulture students from the north west or for those who are studying horticulture in this area.
Lesley Jane, 28 from Fakenham in North Norfolk, and a previous winner of the Ball Colegrave scholarship, explains how the funding helped her both professionally and personally: “Using the bursary, I was able to undertake work experience at Floranova in their labs, as well as working in the potting and seed shed, which allowed me to understand how to harvest seed. One of the most important things was being able to see the whole operation in motion. I would never have been able to do that without the scholarship.”
Applications close 31 January 2022.
