Each year the land-based colleges in the region are invited to apply for grants funded by the Society to enrich the curriculum courses they offer.
In 2016 seven colleges received funding of up to £1,500 for study tours and exchange trips to The Badminton Horse Trials, Gloucestershire, Paris, and Scotland; attending Livestock Events and Conferences; Feasibility Studies; building a Reflection Garden and converting an underutilised space to develop a specific learning area. Reports on the various projects are displayed in the Education Marquee at the Spring, South of England and Autumn Shows. Colleges are invited to apply for funding in August and the funds are awarded in October.
