A RANGE of new residential scholarships for farming students are being offered by Newton Rigg College.

Principal Wes Johnson said: “Young people are finding it harder and harder to fund their education and yet the future of the farming industry depends on well qualified, work ready individuals.

"Hopefully these scholarships will help address that, and I would urge all those interested in a career in the farming, horticulture, game keeping and forestry sectors to apply.”

To apply please go to the college website – www.newtonrigg.ac.uk where a form can be downloaded.
