Marshal Papworth – Growing out of hunger

At Marshal Papworth we help students from developing countries to grow themselves out of hunger so that they and their fellow countrymen benefit from a more sustainable future.

We do this through providing agricultural and horticultural scholarships and helping students to develop practical skills and valuable knowledge to share within their local communities in order to meet future food needs for generations to come.

Our scholarship placements take place within the UK at leading agricultural and horticultural education institutions; an approach that we believe offers advantageous experiential learning.

The first students to benefit from our work began their studies in 2002 and since then over 200 scholarships have been awarded to applicants from around the world.
