Bicentenary Bursary Fund awarded to Kristoffer Smith


Grants and Funding for Training and Education in the Scottish Borders and North Northumberland

How can a Border Union Bicentenary Bursary fund your education?

The Border Union Bicentenary Bursary Fund offers financial support to people with drive and ambition who seek to advance their careers (or start a new career) in agriculture, forestry, horticulture, country sports, the food sector, conservation, rural crafts, equestrianism, rural leisure, fish farming, environment, renewable sources of energy, and all aspects of the rural economy of the Borders and North Northumberland.

It was set up to commemorate the Bicentenary of the Society in 2013. It is expected to reach £160,000 after generous support from landed estates, trusts, companies and individuals.

Particular emphasis will be placed on ensuring that the support given to successful applicants will ultimately contribute to the benefit of the rural economy of the area. This reflects the main objective laid down by the founders of the Society in 1813, that of ‘encouraging improvement’.

The Panel (see picture) will meet quarterly to consider applications for funding. The panel is made up of:

Back row from left to right : Charlie Robertson, ex-Rector Kelso High School; Ronald Wilson, Secretary BUAS; Douglas Stephen, Vice Chairman BUAS; Jonny McCririck, Chairman BUAS; Luke Comins, Director Tweed Forum, Tommy Clark, Director BUAS.

Front row from left to right : Liz McIntyre, Principal Borders College; Lord Joicey, Ford & Etal Estates (Chairman); Jill McGregor, Director McGregor Farms. Absent : Gordon Chisholm, BUAS Accountant.
