Cash boost for Wye’s top new scholars

Agricola Scholarships worth up to £3,000 each have been presented to the eight most outstanding students who started Bachelor or Master of Science degree programmes last term at Wye campus. Award winners were chosen on the basis of excellent performance in previous studies, together with practical experience.

Successful postgraduate students included Gabriella Cocco-Greaves (MSc Agribusiness for Development), until recently a volunteer for the Fairtrade Foundation promoting the interests of farmers in poorer countries; Chris Penrose-Buckley (MSc Managing Rural Development), who has worked for Christian Aid in East Africa, central Asia and Afghanistan; Amber Teacher (MRes Animal Science), who has researched conservation of mammals at the Institute of Zoology; and Katie Watson (MSc Environmental Management), who spent last summer studying primates in the Amazon Basin, Peru.

Award-winning undergraduates include Kwok Kei Mak from Hong Kong and Winson Yeung from Gloucester, who are studying for a BSc in Applied Business Management, Katherine Olley from Dorset (BSc Animal Science (Equine)) and Matthew Yu Wang from Hertfordshire (BSc Environmental Science).
