£500 Travel Bursary for Academics

The 2018 bursary has been awarded to Jill Raggett, Emeritus Reader in Gardens and Designed Landscapes, Writtle University College, Essex, UK.

Jill has visited New York and the High Line, a disused railway line which has been turned into an elevated, linear 2.33 km public park. She is going to talk to us on March 27th about her visit. Click here for more information.

We are delighted to announce that the 2019 bursary has been awarded to Saruhan Mosler, who plans to travel to Merano and visit the gardens of Trauttmansdorff Castle.

Saruhan writes: ‘I am very happy to receive this bursary. I am planning to visit the botanical garden in Merano, (South Tyrol) Italy in May 2019 to be able to see the vegetation and the fully functioning garden.’

Once she has visited the gardens, she will be giving a talk to the EGT to tell us what she learnt. We look forward to that and will post news and pictures of the trip after May on social media and here. Details of the talk will follow.

To find out how to apply for the 2020 bursary, join us and keep an eye on our Website and Facebook.
