BASC’s trailblazing scholarship programme has opened for this year’s applicants.
Launched in 2019 to support people keen to develop their knowledge of conservation, land management and gamekeeping, the programme continues to grow.
Receiving a maximum of £4,500 per year to go towards tuition fees or study materials, successful applicants have already begun to reap the rewards.
The application process will remain open until 15th June 2021.
Curtis Mossop, BASC’s head of pathways to shooting, said: “Through BASC’s legacy fund, this scholarship programme is able to make a substantial difference to those wanting to further their education. Through the devastation of the past year, this programme offers an opportunity into a future of land management that might have otherwise been out of reach.”
One of last year’s scholarship recipients, Charlie Newman, said: “I am incredibly grateful to have this opportunity from BASC. The scholarship has enabled me to further my educational journey and hopefully put me a step closer to achieving my goal of becoming a wildlife ranger. In addition to the scholarship funding, I’ve had access to a broad network of contacts within BASC and the wider community.”
