Holland & Holland are delighted to announce a new bursary scheme for young people.

 

The Holland & Holland Bursary will award a young gamekeeper or stalker in the first five years of their career with up to £10,000 to pursue a project or course related to sustainable natural resource management.

 

Applicants have up to 31st May to send in a video or written piece describing what they would like to do with the prize. Whether it be a young stalker looking to do a postgraduate course in sustainable deer management, or a trainee gamekeeper hoping to learn from how grey partridges are managed in France, the bursary is designed to broaden the horizons of young gamekeepers.

 

All applications will be reviewed by a panel of prominent figures in shooting, including Hugh Van Cutsem and Liam Bell.

 

‘As a leading figure within the shooting industry,’ adds Daryl Greatrex, Managing Director of Holland & Holland, ‘we are aware of the importance of supporting young people who wish to play a role in wildlife management and ethical shooting. Our hope is that through this scheme, we will be able to help further the education of young gamekeepers and provide a platform for the winner to become an ambassador for shooting and conservation’.

 

The winner of the Holland & Holland Conservation Bursary will be announced at a reception for applicants and members of the press at our flagship store at 33 Bruton Street in early July.
