The Marshal Papworth Scholarships Programme at Reading is a merit and experience-based award given to talented individuals who demonstrate that they have the potential, at the end of their Master’s programme, to motivate people and communities in their home country towards positive change. The Scholarships are offered in collaboration with the Wallace and Muriel Hurst Fund.
1. Candidates must have demonstrable work or voluntary experience working in community development and/or agricultural development.
2. Candidates must have a 2:1 or 1st class degree at the undergraduate level (we use NARIC to assess degree equivalency).

- Agriculture and Development
- Applied International Development

At least one scholarship will be awarded to the MSc Agriculture and Development. The remaining scholarships will be awarded to applicants across a range of the remaining degree programmes.
