Bashford-Nicholls Trust

BAF manages the scholarships provided by the Bashford-Nicholls Trust. This trust operates two dairy farms in South Taranaki with the aim of generating surpluses to enable scholarships for agriculture and veterinary science study and research.

BAF has developed and now manages an exciting and future focused scholarship programme that has extended the impact of the scholarships offered through the Bashford-Nicholls trust. The exciting new scholarship programme was launched in September 2017. Four scholarship tiers now support PhD, Masters, Undergraduate and vocational programmes of study.

Working in partnership with CommunityForce, an online scholarship portal was developed to streamline access to Taranaki based scholarships.

Bashford-Nicholls scholarships are available for applications in October each year by visiting https://taranakischolarships.communityforce.com
