Jack Wright Memorial Trust
The Jack Wright Memorial Trust was set up in 1966 to honour the memory of Jack Wright, a pioneer of irrigation in the UK and the founder of Wright Rain Ltd, a well-known manufacturer of irrigation equipment.
Over its 50+ years existence the trust has sought to achieve its purpose through a number of different initiatives, including:
- Full scholarships for MSc study in UK
- Partial scholarships to support travel in connection with MSc projects
- Awards for early career professionals for travel overseas to study water management in agriculture, including irrigation.
How to apply?
Opportunities are advertised from time to time. To apply for a Travel Scholarship, you will need to prepare a well-thought-out proposal (maximum two-A4 pages), that highlights how you and the wider community will benefit from the award. You should also enclose your
CV (maximum two-A4 pages). If you are shortlisted, you may be asked to attend an interview so that you can present your proposal to the Trustees.
