For the first time, the Farm Biosecurity Program, run by Plant Health Australia and Animal Health Australia, will support a scholarship for a primary producer to study a topic relevant to on-farm biosecurity.
Nuffield Australia Farming Scholarships are a unique way for primary producers to participate in a life-changing experience, travel overseas and study an agricultural topic of choice.
There are 20 Nuffield Scholarships on offer this year, each valued at $30,000, including one Farm Biosecurity Nuffield Scholarship.
These scholarships allow you to study a subject of interest to you, by visiting and studying farming businesses in New Zealand, Europe, Asia and the Americas.
Upon returning to Australia, scholars produce a written report and communicate the new knowledge and experience to their fellow scholars, farmers and others.
You don’t need academic qualifications to apply. Scholars are selected on merit, and are typically committed and passionate about farming, at the leading edge of technology uptake, and potential future leaders in their industry.
Applications for 2021 scholarships open on 29 June 2020. Initial interviews will be held in late September, and short-listed candidates will be interviewed in mid-October, with the Nuffield National Conference to be held in Brisbane on 26-27 October 2020. Travel commences in 2021*.
We urge young farmers with a desire to drive their knowledge and businesses forward to consider applying and prepare your application now.
For more information and to apply go to the Nuffield Australia website.
* The scholarship calendar may be subject to changes due to the Covid-19 travel restrictions. Nuffield Australia management will continually communicate with applicants and scholars if changes need to be made.
