Black Isle Farmers’ Society has announced the opening of its bursary scheme for 2021.

Applications for awards are being invited from young people wishing to study and gain qualifications in a farming or agriculturally-related subject. Courses can either be educational or vocational.

Applications must be made by April 15. The bursary is open to those between the ages of 16 to 26 who live, study or work in the Highlands or have strong connections to the area.

Society president Freida Mckenzie said: “Unfortunately, we did not manage to run this last year, but are now geared up to accept applications for 2021. Areas that the bursary may be applicable to are agriculture, animal science, land management and rural environment, to name but a few.”

Details are on the Black Isle Show website.
