Less than one week remaining to apply for BASC scholarships


There is less than a week until the deadline for applications for one of two BASC scholarships for the 2024/25 academic year

The BASC Wildlife Fund David Gray Scholarship offers support to students currently studying, or aiming to study, subjects related to conservation or land management. Named in memory of Mr David Gray, the new scholarship offers financial support for those wishing to further their education and future careers in the areas of conservation or land management. 

Applications for the scholarship opened earlier in the year, and close on 28 June 2024. Scholarships will be awarded to up to two recipients, up to a maximum of £4,500 each per year. The scholarship is open to all BASC members, and their immediate family. 

The David Gray scholarship complements BASC’s existing Legacy Funded Scholarship programme, which provides financial assistance to students on land management, conservation or gamekeeping courses, or those wishing to study subjects related to these fields in the future. The Legacy Funded Scholarship also closes for applications on 28 June.

BASC’s head of education and outreach, Curtis Mossop, said: “We are honoured to be able to offer the David Gray BASC Wildlife Fund Scholarship from this year, adding to our portfolio of support for students studying in the conservation and land-based sectors. 

“The scholarships aim to remove financial barriers to education and set the recipients well on the way to achieving their career ambitions.”
