Educational Bursaries

Dartington Cattle Breeding Trust

Registered Charity Number: 201135

EDUCATIONAL BURSARIES

 

NEW FOR 2019 - APPLICATIONS ARE ACCEPTED FROM STUDENTS LIVING IN SOMERSET, AS WELL AS DEVON AND CORNWALL

 

The Dartington Cattle Breeding Trust award educational bursaries to students studying on agricultural and related courses on an annual basis. Students must be resident in Devon, Cornwall and Somerset.

 

A limited number of bursaries, up to a maximum of £1,000 per annum, are available for suitable students, with a lifetime limit of £3,000 per student.

 

These bursaries are awarded on merit and take into account the educational level of the course being studied and number of applications received in each year.

 

Awards are made at the sole discretion of Trustees, whose decision is final.

 

Students may apply for an educational bursary annually, as long as all of the eligibility criteria are met.

 

Students studying on their industrial placement year are not eligible for a bursary award during that year.

 

A completed application form is required for each successive year (but without references)

 

2015 Update: with an ever increasing number of applicants and limited resources, the Trust’s priority is to support First Degree students from 2015 onwards. Applications are welcome from Foundation Degree and Extended Diploma students, but funds will be allocated to First Degree applicants initially and any surplus thereafter to Foundation Degree and Extended Diploma applicants.
