Scholarship Details

We provide opportunities for students from developing countries to gain the agricultural and horticultural skills needed to achieve a sustainable future for themselves and their communities through two scholarship programmes:
Masters programme – A one year’s Masters Degree in agriculture or horticulture at a UK-based university
Marshal Papworth 10-week short course – A 10-week practical and experiential course to empower change makers in rural communities.

Our Masters programme
We fund scholarships for one-year postgraduate courses for students from developing countries (link to table) for UK-based MSc and MA courses. As an agricultural charity we favour land-based postgraduate courses, including Sustainable Development, Waste Management and International Horticulture. However, we also consider more general courses such as Project Management and Economic Development. Applications for our Masters scholarships are made directly to one of our partner universities/colleges, for a list of these please click here (link to Universities/Colleges page).

Marshal Papworth 10-week short course
This course has been designed specifically for students who can demonstrate a strong hands-on commitment to their community and its agricultural development. Potential candidates for this course include innovative farmers, community project leaders or primary school teachers with a keen interest in local agriculture, who are motivated in becoming change makers within their communities. Applications for our Demonstration Farmer course can be made by clicking here.
