Tyrone Farming Society Bursary

Date published: 05 July 2016

CAFRE, Enniskillen Campus would like to thank Tyrone Farming Society for their continued support for equine students over the last academic year. Representatives of Tyrone Farming Society have continued to support the campus by being present on Careers day and by attending our graduation day.

Annually, Tyrone Farming Society awards a bursary to one lucky Enniskillen Campus student.  This year’s recipient was Jessica Hobson from Banbridge, a first year student on the Foundation Degree in Equine Management. In order to win the Tyrone Farming Bursary, Jessica had to obtain top grade in an assignment on ‘The Equine Stud Calendar’ which was linked with her Breeding and Stud Practices module. On winning the bursary Jessica said: “I am so grateful to the Tyrone Farming Society for providing me with this generous bursary. CAFRE provides me with so many options for the future, but College can be expensive, therefore this bursary will go a long way to supporting me through this academic year.”

Enniskillen Campus would like to thank in particular Mr Edwin Cartwright, Mr John Chambers and Ms Anne McDermott of the Tyrone Farming Society for their continued support.
