The Kent Rural Scholarship Scheme has been running since 2016 and is designed to support Kent based students who are looking to study agriculture or land-based subjects at university. Scholars are awarded a bursary of £1000 per year for up to three years of their course. The Kent County Agricultural Society supports up to 9 students at any one time.

The Kent Rural Scholarship Scheme is run by the Kent County Agricultural Society as part of its charitable objectives to support and promote agriculture in Kent. As well as these Scholarships, the Society also awards a number of grants each year to local Young Farmers Clubs to help support with equipment buying and running costs.
