Grants for Land-Based Colleges
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, where activities included attending livestock events and conferences, feasibility studies, building a Reflection Garden and converting an under-used 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.
The Society also runs a Project Assignment Competition which is open to all students studying at land-based colleges in the region and is designed to encourage individual research, to improve knowledge and develop study skills.
