Student, George Laws, has won a David Colegrave Foundation (DCF) Sponsored Scholarship.
George, who is studying Horticulture BSc at Writtle College in Chelmsford, Essex, received the £1,500 South West Growers Show Sponsored Scholarship.
George is interested in production horticulture, particularly regarding sustainability and plans to pursue further education in this area, with hopes to eventually head a department of resource efficiency.
George says, “I am astounded by the generosity of the South West Growers Show and the David Colegrave Foundation. A very sincere thank you, not just for helping me but for enhancing all horticulture students. From giving employers the confidence to hire us to supplying us with the backing needed.”
The SWGS Sponsored Scholarship supports students with a passion for commercial and production horticulture. The SWGS is the South West’s leading trade show for commercial horticulture.
SWGS says, “Congratulations to George, we look forward to his updates. We would also like to wish all of the candidates who applied every success in their future endeavours.”
As part of the DCF Scholarship Season several scholarships were available; the winners of the Student Scholarships are to be announced soon.
The next Scholarship Season runs from Sep 2017 to Jan 2018.
