£30k regional funding pot to boost careers, networking and skills.

THOSE looking to progress careers within the potato industry in East Anglia are being offered the chance to apply for a grant of up the £2,000, following the launch of the East of England Agricultural Society Scholars Programme. 

The programme has three funding windows, the first of which closes on February 20th. Further windows will close in June and October, but applications are being welcomed all year round.

The East of England Agricultural Society launched the fund in September 2023, offering successful applicants the opportunity to develop their careers, whilst also building a network around the programme to help create future leaders in the industry.

Funding recipients will receive mentorship from committee members and past scholars, be invited to deliver talks, and have the opportunity to feed into the wider Society network.

Agricultural Events Manager, Ruth Trolove, said: “We are interested in viewing applications from anyone in the agricultural and horticultural sectors who thinks they could benefit from the programme, there are no limitations on age or background. This is a great opportunity to further your career whilst giving back to the community and to add to the network by encouraging future applicants.”
