Kent Horticultural Bursary is an organisation whose goal is to encourage all aspects of horticultural study and in particular to promote this by means of an annual award of a bursary of up to £1000. The Bursary is funded by the Kent Horticultural Discussion Group, which supports professional development in the horticultural industry and provides a social forum to share ideas and information. East Malling Research (EMR), a leading R&D organisation, has hosted the group since its outset.
Applications may be made by individuals or groups and a single annual award will be granted. The award can be for a study tour, project or piece of research work in any area of horticulture and applications will be judged for their long-term educational and community merits.
Applications for the Kent Horticultural Bursary are now open. Applications must include a fully planned and costed proposal and be received by 5 p.m. on 1 September. Further information and application forms for the bursary are available on the website.
