Young Darwin Scholarship
The Young Darwin Scholarship is an FSC initiative to encourage and support young people who have a real interest in the natural world - to develop the next generation of ‘Darwins’
15 Scholarships are awarded each year to young people aged 16 and 17 who have demonstrated their interest and potential.
Young Darwin Scholars attend an introductory residential course and then are offered support and other opportunities to develop knowledge and skills and build a network of Young Darwin Scholars over a number of years.
The Young Darwin Scholarship has received support from The Jean Jackson Trust, The Cross Hills Naturalists’ Society Duncan Clough Grant, The Botanical Society of Britain and Ireland, the Royal Entomological Society and individual donations. Thanks to this generous support FSC is able to provide ongoing support and opportunities for the Young Darwin Scholars of 2012 and 2013 and 15 new scholarships in 2014.
