Emily Holmes Memorial Scholarships
The Emily Holmes Memorial Scholarship funding is for postgraduate botanical research and is generously supported by the Amar-Franses & Foster-Jenkins Trust.
The Trust is particularly keen to encourage applicants who are finding it difficult to secure funding from other sources and in a position where a grant would make a significant contribution to their studies.
Funding is available for a research project which forms a part of your postgraduate course, or academic fees.
The Scholarship fund is a total of £10,000 per annum. The maximum an individual student can be awarded is £3,000 with grants typically made between £1,000 and £3,000.
