The Deakin and Combe Memorial Trust is inviting applications for assistance with the costs of further education.
The trust will make awards to those who are studying, or about to study, an agriculture-related course in the 2021/22 academic year, and whose parent(s) have contributed to the industry in England or Wales.
Last year, successful candidates received grants of between £500 and £1,000 towards items such as training courses, laptops and books - a significant sum for any student while at college or university.
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 was first formed in 1944 in memory of George Deakin, former Vice President of the NFU and Chairman of the Pigs Marketing Board, who was tragically killed in 1943.
