These Bursaries were established to help existing horticultural students whose ability to continue with their studies has been jeopardised by the effects of death, disease or disaster on them or their families.
Where a Hardship Bursary is approved, assistance will normally be provided in the form of a one-off grant of £500 or £1000. Please note that these Bursaries are available only to students experiencing exceptional, unforeseen hardship, and not to those who simply have insufficient means to continue with their studies.
