Orskov Foundation Grants 2021

The Orskov Foundation provides grants that help individual students with funding to cover training needs and support a focused programme of community projects in developing countries.

Orskov Foundation Grants 2021 Eligibility:

If your application does not meet all the following criteria it will not pass the initial shortlisting for consideration by the Trustees.

  • Applications from students registered at university in a country not classified by the UN as lower middle income, or low-income will NOT be funded.
  • Applications seeking funding for equipment, or attendance at conferences, will NOT be funded.
  • Applications seeking scholarships to cover the costs of complete Bachelor, Masters or Doctorate courses, or parts of Bachelor, Masters or Doctorate courses will NOT be funded
  • Applications seeking funding to cover the costs of Bachelor, Masters or Doctorate research projects will NOT be funded
  • Applications that cannot demonstrate the potential to alleviate poverty and/or provide sustainable environmental benefits will NOT be funded.

Applications from students not studying degrees related to agriculture, land use or the environment will NOT be funded.

If you have got this far then keep reading, as the next section contains some important guidance that must be followed for a student application to be successful.

  • The student grants are only provided to help support costs of training at a university or similar organisation other than the university/college in which you are registered at the time of the application.
  • Eligible students MUST be registered for graduate degrees and MUST be able to demonstrate that they have full support from the relevant university department/organisation that they are seeking training from.
  • Preference will be given to support training aimed at sustainable land use problems with an emphasis on animal, plant and soil interactions, where it can be demonstrated that, in addition to contributing to knowledge, they will (a) have the potential to alleviate poverty and (b) provide sustainable environmental benefits, including adaptation/mitigation to the impact of climate change. Training outwith these areas will not be funded.
  • The Trustees will only consider projects with a budget up to a maximum of £2,500.   This is the upper limit, not an indication that you should request this amount.
  • Applicants will be expected to provide a budget and FULL justification for the funding claimed. Applicants that do not provide an adequate breakdown of the anticipated expenditure will not be shortlisted for evaluation.
  • Please do not send any additional documentation, such as exam results, CVs, letters of support, etc.  These will not be used in the evaluation of your application.  Appropriate references will be sought for student applications that pass the evaluation stage.
  • Projects will be selected by an open application process.  Grants will be awarded in March/April.
  • The deadline for receipt of applications is 31st December each year. Applications received after this date will not be considered for evaluation.
  • All applicants will be sent notification that their application has been received.  Applicants will also be sent an email in March or April of the following year to inform them whether they have been successful or not.  We will use the contact email address that you include on your application form, so please ensure that it is the correct address.
  • All successful student applicants will be expected to provide a full report at the end of their funding period.  This report will outline the outcomes from the application and a breakdown of the expenditure made.
  • Applications MUST be submitted using the Orskov Foundation application form and sent as a MS WORD attachment to an email.
  • All applications must be submitted in English.
  • Each section of the application form has been included for a reason.  In order to evaluate your application against all the others received you must include text in each section of the application form, otherwise your application will not be shortlisted.
