Creating a better future

Hartpury College Prize Day
Daniel Olley Hartpury

This scholarship enables emerging trailblazers from all over the world to utilise their Hartpury qualification to grow the industries of equine, sport, agriculture and animal.

Whilst there is no ‘typical’ award winner, we are looking for individuals who have the passion, ideas and influence to develop the industry to create a better future.

Scholarships of £3,000 per person are available to support international students to join and excel at Hartpury University. They are open to new full-time international fee-paying students.

To apply for a scholarship, complete the application form and write a 500-word essay answering the question:

‘How will you use your Hartpury qualification to grow the equine, sports, agriculture or animal industry to create a better future?’

  • The Principal's International Scholarship is only available for students who are coming to study full-time at Hartpury College for at least a full academic year. If you withdraw within your first year, your International Scholarship will be retracted and you will be expected to pay 25% of the full international tuition fee.
