From 2019, the scholarship is generously funded by TelferYoung, in memory of Mark Ashford. Mark had CF and passed away in 1996 after making a huge contribution to home health with his work on the Fletcher Group’s Healthy Homes book.

2016 marked 20 years of the Mark Ashford Scholarship with a video produced by Kieran Wright to acknowledge the past recipients who achieved remarkable results – often in the face of adversity.

How do I apply?

Applications for 2019 are now closed. Information about the 2020 scholarship will be published later in the year.
