Clyde Higgs Scholarships

The Elizabeth Creak Charitable Trust are generously funding postgraduate scholarships to support students interested in pursuing a career in the agri-food sector. The principle aim of the Trust is to provide support and encourage new blood in farming through education and other means, and to finance projects to help agriculture succeed and ultimately thrive in a challenging environment.

Clyde Higgs Scholarships

Thanks to the considerable generosity of the Elizabeth Creak Charitable Trust, Clyde Higgs Scholarships are available to UK applicants for the MSc courses Environmental Bioscience in a Changing Climate, Food Security, and Sustainable Crop Production: Agronomy for the 21st Century.

The Clyde Higgs Scholarships are valued greatly by their recipients and enable them to focus on their studies. The reach that Warwick alumni have into the food/farming/environment area is increasingly impressive. They are employed in some of the key organisations (e.g. AHDB, Defra, LEAF, Agrii, Syngenta, Bayer, Elsoms Seeds, Tesco, Rothamsted Research, NIAB-EMR, Stockbridge Technology Centre, Fargro) that underpin the UK farming industry and are well-placed to be the influencers and leaders of the future.
