The Trust is dedicated to improving farming, food production and the sustainable rural economy by growing the talents of the people on which their futures depend through the best possible learning environment
“Cultivating excellence” is the aim of the Development Trust which has been set up to help Harper Adams students by:
- continuing the University’s work to create the best possible learning environment for its students, particularly by improving student facilities;
- providing an endowment fund to help students in need of financial support take part in higher education at Harper.
Any special conditions?
The Trust is aware that the cost of higher education can be a major obstacle for many potential students and consequently seeks to support students by helping to raise funds to create scholarships for those in financial need and to help attract the best possible students to continue the long tradition of providing high quality university education.
Thanks to the hard work of the Trustees and both academic and support staff alike a number of new partnerships have been formed leading to the creation of several new scholarship schemes linked with industry and the private sector for the benefit of Harper Adams and its students.
Through the Rural Employer Engagement Development Network (REEDNeT) the Trust’s aim is to ensure that employers have access to the best higher level training and development for their staff in managerial, professional, technical, sales, advisory and scientific positions.
