Pembrokeshire Agricultural Society's student bursary award is currently open to applications.
Closing date is June 28, 2019.

The £1,000 bursary is open to all qualifying students studying agriculture, veterinary science, agricultural engineering, food technology, forestry or other subjects clearly allied to agriculture.
The bursary is tax free and will be awarded to the student who, in the opinion of a panel of judges, has submitted the best dissertation on how the bursary will assist them to complete their course of study.
Student Bursary Award
Last year's winner was 21-year-old Megan Phillips, of Crymych.
A former pupil of Ysgol y Frenni and Ysgol y Preseli, Megan is now in her third and final year at Aberystwyth University studying BSc agriculture with business studies.
"It was an honour and a privilege to have been awarded the Pembrokeshire County Show student bursary award in 2018," she said.
"The bursary has enabled me to undertake research towards my final year dissertation on the subject of rural crime in the agriculture industry.
"The bursary has also allowed me to be financially secure during my third and last year of studies."
Megan recommends qualifying students applying.
She added: "I would urge all Pembrokeshire students who study subjects that are clearly aligned to agriculture to apply for this bursary as it won't only assist with your studies, but will also give you great experiences such as undertaking an interview which is a key employment skill. It will also assist in your future career within the agriculture industry."
Qualifying students must not have won the student bursary on a previous occasion, the applicant must be studying or has been accepted to study  agriculture or allied subjects at a UK college or university at A-Level or higher and the applicants' family home must be in Pembrokeshire.
How to enter
To enter, students must submit a dissertation of 1,000 words entitled 'How the bursary will assist my career progression.'

"A panel of independent judges, chaired by a representative of the society, will draw up a short list of candidates who will be interviewed," explained Show governor Robert Lewis, "and the winning candidate will be asked to give a short presentation at a future meeting of the society's Show council."
"The standard of applications has always been exceptional which gives a lot of heart that there are a lot of very talented young people in our community. We are very much looking forward to receiving applications for this year's bursary and hearing from the younger generation.
