The Kaleb Cooper Agriculture Bursary

Kaleb Cooper came from a non-agricultural background but is passionate about all things farming, and giving those who would otherwise be unable to enter the career a chance to follow their dreams and work in agriculture.  

To support this aim, Kaleb is launching a bursary at the Royal Agricultural University, contributing £3,000 to a successful applicant who wants to pursue a career in Agriculture, which will be supplemented by a placement with Kaleb and/or his industry partners either during the course of their University studies, or as a gap year placement.
