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.
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. The Marshal Papworth Fund is currently working with a number of organisations in country who are responsible for the selection of candidates for the Marshal Papworth 10-week Short Course.
The 10-week course at Harper Adams University starts in May with students arriving in the UK during the week the course begins.

Our Masters Programme
We fund scholarships for one-year postgraduate courses for students from developing countries for UK-based MSc and MA courses. Marshal’s legacy wish was that the scholarships should favour land-based courses. For a full list of supported courses please click the button below.
