The British and International Golf Greenkeepers Association has announced the launch of a new scholarship in conjunction with BIGGA Partner, ICL.
The ICL Continue to Learn Scholarship will offer five BIGGA members the opportunity to attend the Continue to Learn education programme that will be held at BTME 2017.
Sami Strutt, BIGGA’s Head of Member Development, said: “As BIGGA Partners, ICL have long recognised the significant investment that greenkeepers make in developing themselves throughout their careers. Often this dedication is done at their own personal expense, and so I am delighted that ICL will help five BIGGA members with the support they need to make the most of the Continue to Learn education programme at BTME 2017.”
The scholarship is worth approximately £500 per person and comprises three nights’ hotel accommodation and a 15-hour education bundle.
Commenting on the sponsorship agreement, ICL’s Ed Carter, Turf and Landscape – Sales and Development Manager, said: “ICL are delighted to sponsor BIGGA’s Continue to Learn Scholarship as we are keen to promote education at all levels of turf management.”
“We see the Scholarship scheme as an exciting opportunity to provide Continue to Learn education to people who under normal circumstances may not be able to attend BTME, and we feel that it is an extension to the support we have always provided to the industry as a whole.”
Applicants for the scholarship must be BIGGA members and a panel, made up of representatives from BIGGA and ICL will review all applications and select the recipients of the five scholarships. Successful applicants will be advised in October 2016.
