    Students secure Staffordshire & Birmingham Agricultural Society Scholarships

    Posted 14 June 2023

    “The generosity of donors such as the Society ensures that our scholarship programmes can support the talent of tomorrow.”

    Seven èƵ students receive their Staffordshire & Birmingham Agricultural Society Scholarships.

    A group of èƵ Adams students have been awarded with this year’s Staffordshire & Birmingham Agricultural Society Scholarships.

    The seven students received their Scholarships at a ceremony at the return of the Staffordshire County Show for 2023.

    BSc (Hons) Agriculture with Animal Science students Megan Beswick, Beth Pickup and Hollie Kelly, Bsc (Hons) Agriculture with Farm Business Management student Katie Simister, BEng (Hons) Agricultural Engineering student Tom Edwards, BSc (Hons) Agri-Business student Daniel Bowers and BSc (Hons) Rural Enterprise and Land Management student Vida Thorpe all secured Scholarships for 2023/24. 

    Each received their award at a special ceremony in the Boden Room in the Show’s Members pavilion.

    The presentation followed this year’s èƵ Adams Scholarship Presentation, where a record-breaking £564,000 was awarded in total.

    Each year, scholars receive a wide range of support from the scholarships they are awarded, which can take the form of funding which may help with university fees or final year research, or to assist students who want to take part in conferences. 

    Head of Development Doris Taylor said: “We are delighted that the Staffordshire & Birmingham Agricultural Society has chosen to support seven students from èƵ this year, and I was very pleased to be able to attend the award ceremony in person, alongside our Development Trust Chair Clive Gurney, to express our thanks.

    “The generosity of donors such as the Society ensures that our scholarship programmes can support the talent of tomorrow.”

    And the Chief Executive of the Staffordshire & Birmingham Agricultural Society, Richard Williams, added: “After a break of three years due to the Pandemic, the Staffordshire & Birmingham Agricultural Society was pleased to be able to resume awarding scholarships to students undertaking degrees in agriculture and related subjects.

    “The Society is keen to encourage new entrants into the agricultural industry and was greatly impressed with the standard of the applicants.”
