The Lindsey Milne bursary scheme is named after Dr DL Milne in honour of his vast and selfless contributions to the Subtropical fruit industry. Dr Milne served the subtropical fruit industry in many ways, as employee of the Institute for Tropical and Subtropical Fruit, as General Manager of Westfalia and after his retirement, as Chairman of the Subtrop group.  The SA Subtropical Growers’ Association (Subtrop), comprising of the South African Avocado Growers’ Association (SAAGA), The South African Mango Growers’ Association (SAMGA) and the South African Litchi Growers’ Association (SALGA), is the donor of funds to the Lindsey Milne Bursary Scheme.


To assist students wishing to pursue a career in the Subtropical fruit industry in South Africa.  To this end, financial assistance will be provided to students studying towards a BSc (Agric) degree, preferably majoring in Horticultural Science or Agricultural Economics.



For any one student, the bursary will be available for an initial period of one year, after which progress will determine the extension of the bursary.  If a student is awarded the bursary for the first time, he/she will not automatically qualify for the bursary for the next year.
