Bursaries available

We have funds from various sources, including the Organic Growers Alliance and the Ernest Cook Trust, to enable young people (students/apprentices/new entrants) with limited means to attend the conference.

We have also secured bursaries for young people living in Berkshire. If you are 26 or under, resident in Berkshire and training (student/apprentice) to or starting a career in agriculture, you may qualify for one of our Gordon Palmer Memorial Trust bursaries.

Bursary funding is also available from the Greenham Common Trust for young people (aged 18-26) from West Berkshire who are registered on an existing FE/HE course in agriculture, horticulture or related topic, or engaged in a relevant work-experience placement or apprenticeship scheme, or at an early stage of a career in a food or farming related business.

If you think you may qualify for any of the above bursaries, please e-mail Gillian Woodward with details of your address, age and circumstances to check your eligibility.

This project has been supported through the Rural Development Programme for England, which is jointly funded by Defra and the European Union.
