Six students benefit from Newarks Educational Grant Scheme


Six students who are undertaking agricultural and industry-related courses have been awarded a total of 4,865.00 from the Newark & Nottinghamshire Agricultural Society Educational Grant Scheme. The grants were presented at the County Show by President Mr Graham Cartledge CBE.

Chris Mather from Worksop, Callum Kendall from Ravenshead, Thomas Speck from Carlton and Thurgaton-based Richard Yates are all studying BTEC in Agriculture at Brackenhurst College. They were awarded 900.00 each towards the cost of their NPTC courses and associated tests.


Harper Adams University College student Sarah Baker has been given the maximum award of 1,000.00, enabling her to attend a food hygiene course and purchase a laptop and printer to use for her coursework. Sarah, from Perlethorpe, is studying for a Degree in Food and Consumer Studies.

Southwell-based Natalie Morgan is in her third year of a BSc (Hons) Degree in Animal Biology at Nottingham Trent University. She was awarded 250.00 to attend the Worlds Poultry Association Conference in Belfast and provided an informative, poster to display during the presentation which illustrated how the award had benefitted her knowledge of her chosen subject.

Now in its fourth year, the Newark & Nottinghamshire Agricultural Society Educational Grant Scheme was set up to assist students working for qualifications in agriculture and other land-based related industries, and who aimed to follow their careers within Nottinghamshire.

Applications for grants are submitted in writing, with short-listed students undergoing an interview prior to gaining approval for their requested funds. Further information is available from the Newark & Nottinghamshire Agricultural Society on 01636 705796 or by visiting the website,
