Marshal Papworth Scholarship

The Marshal Papworth Scholarships are designed to support postgraduate students from developing countries studying land based courses such as Horticulture and Agriculture. The scholarship is made possible by the generosity of the late Marshall Papworth, an English farmer and member of the East of England Agricultural Society.

A list of qualifying countries can be found at International students from developing countries who have been offered admission to a taught Master's course at Writtle University College may apply for a Marshal Papworth Scholarship.

To be eligible for the scholarship application process, students must have made a successful application for postgraduate study and hold an unconditional offer from the University College. This is a prerequisite for the scholarship application. Students are encouraged to make the applications for their chosen master’s course in the preceding autumn to their intended year of study.

Applications for the Marshal Papworth Scholarships are not made directly to the Trust, but via Dr Anya Perera. The closing date for scholarship applications is early spring.

Please note, the next application phase will open in the Autumn of 2021 for the 2022/23 entry.
