Agricultural student to benefit from Gwili Jones bursary

An agricultural engineering student from Carmarthen has won the Coleg Sir Gâr Gwili Jones Educational Bursary.

Grace Elizabeth Marshall, 19, was presented with the award - which supports students entering the agricultural engineering industry with prestigious work placements - at this year’s Royal Welsh Show.

As a result, she will spend a week with Krone UK in Yorkshire, a world-leader in product innovation in the hay and forage industry. 

Sian Davies of Gwili Jones said: “We have an ongoing collaborative relationship with Krone UK and we share our commitment to the agricultural industry. We are delighted to be supporting Grace through a work placement which I’m sure will be of significant benefit to her.”

Grace, the daughter of a dairy farmer who since leaving school, has studied at Coleg Sir Gâr’s Gelli Aur campus, qualified with a level three diploma in agriculture. With a developing interest in machinery and engineering, she returned to study a level three diploma in land-based technology.

The Gwili Jones bursary is available to land-based students at Coleg Sir Gâr along with an additional Product Development Award, which helps students develop and present innovations designed to benefit the industry.
