Application calls for 2020 Marshal Papworth Scholarships in Agriculture for Developing countries in the United Kingdom. The Marshal Papworth Fund provides opportunities for students from developing countries to gain the agricultural and horticultural skills necessary to achieve a sustainable future for themselves and their communities. The fund offers two scholarships for students.
The Marshal Papworth Scholarships are open to the nationalities and residents of developing countries (countries with a GNI per capita below US$11500). The organizer will shortlist scholarship candidates who fully meet the criteria for the courses against 3 main criteria: academic excellence, professional experience (includes experiences of voluntary capacity) in community development and/or agricultural development, and the potential for contribution to development in their home country after completion of their degree program.
The scholarship for the 10-week short course at Harper Adams University comprises coverage for the 240 hours of tuition including 10 hours of IT tuition, visa assistance, travel expenses, accommodation on-site at Shuttleworth College in the Halls of Residence, meals in the college’s garden restaurant, an allowance to cover food costs for self-catering at weekends as well as a schedule of cultural visits.
Similarly, the scholarship for the Master’s programs covers tuition fees and provides for living expenses. The scholarship is for a 1-year postgraduate course, which on average is worth £19,000 per student.
