The Deakin and Combe Memorial Trust are inviting applications for assistance with the cost of further education from those that are:

• Studying or about to study an agriculture related course in the academic year 2018/19

• Whose parent(s) have made a contribution to agriculture in England or Wales

Last year, successful candidates received grants of £500 - £1,000 towards such items as training courses, laptops and books, a significant sum for any student while at college or university. 


Closing date for applications is 24 August 2018.

Grants to successful applicants will be sent out in October 2018.

:: These grants are made possible by the continuing support of the Deakin family and that of the Trust of the late Nora Combe; the Deakin and Combe Memorial Trust having been first formed in 1944 in memory of George Deakin, who was Vice President of the NFU and Chairman of the Pigs Marketing Board, he died in 1943.
