Hartpury has launched two new scholarship schemes to provide financial support to students studying degrees in agriculture.

The schemes are being launched after Hartpury received a £1 million endowment from the John Oldacre Foundation.

Hartpury College students progressing from a diploma to an undergraduate degree in agriculture at Hartpury University will be eligible to apply for a John Oldacre Bursary for each academic year of study of their degree.

Hartpury University graduates studying for a PhD will be eligible to apply for the John Oldacre Research Scholarship in an area of promising agricultural research.

Scholarships for both schemes, which are subject to recipients meeting specified criteria, will be awarded for the first time at the start of the 2019/20 academic year.

Russell Marchant, Vice-Chancellor of Hartpury University and Principal of Hartpury College, said: “Through funding scholarships, this extremely generous donation will allow more students to follow their passion and continue their education on our agricultural courses at undergraduate and postgraduate level."
