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.
