The Phillip Wayre Wildlife Trust bursary

The Phillip Wayre Wildlife Trust provide an annual bursary of £5,000 to support a student on the Wildlife Management MSc.

The Trust is a conservation charity dedicated to protecting and restoring unique upland habitat and its endangered wildlife, such as Black Grouse and Breeding Waders, for the benefit of future generations.

It was set up in 1994 by naturalist and conservationist Philip Wayre. His vision was to restore the upland landscape and its endangered species and to inspire the general public to protect and care for the unique uplands in the future, and to raise public awareness of the value of conservation by education and promotion of research and scientific study of the upland ecology.

The bursary is awarded annually on a competitive basis, and is open to applications from students who have already been offered a place on the Newcastle University Wildlife Management Masters Degree programme.

Students wishing to apply for the bursary should submit a copy of their CV and a letter to by August 31st, with ‘Phillip Wayre Bursary Award’ in the email title. 

The letter should describe their conservation interests and experience, how these contribute to the objectives and ideals of the Phillip Wayre Wildlife Trust and how they will benefit from the award. The successful student will be notified before the end of September and the award will be made after they have registered on the degree course and begun their studies.
