CAFRE Bursary Awards
CAFRE Bursary Awards
Welcome from the College Director Mr John Fay
On behalf of the college I welcome you to our Bursary Programme for the academic year 2011/12.
The agri – food industry is vital to our economy and the industry needs well qualified and motivated new entrants to meet future challenges and ensure its continued success. Higher education is expensive and I am delighted to acknowledge the commitment of the industry to the education and training of the managers and leaders of the future through the provision of bursaries.
At Greenmount Campus, the bursaries are open to all first year Higher Education students in BSc Agricultural Technology, Foundation Degree in Agriculture and Rural Studies and the Foundation Degree in Horticulture.
At Loughry Campus, the bursary competition is open to all first year BSc students. There are also a number of bursaries available to second year BSc students.
At Enniskillen Campus, all first year students undertaking the BSc and Foundation Degree in Equine Management can compete for bursaries.
CAFRE is deeply indebted to all bursary donors for their support. I applaud this generosity from industry and their willingness to support young people entering higher education at CAFRE. I encourage all students to compete for the bursaries on offer this year and wish them well with their efforts.
