Applications are now open for the 2019 Nuffield Scholarships. The awards are presented annually to primary producers to support travel and study overseas.
The scholarships motivate farmers to further their careers, whether that be farm expansion, diversification or professional development – the scholarships are a key to unlock change. This year, there are up to 25 scholarships on offer, each valued at $30,000.
Each scholarship extends over 18 months and enables farmers to travel overseas for 16 weeks, to discover and learn from some of the best operators in the business, who are making a meaningful impact on their industry, and to share those learnings back home.
The Nuffield community comprises more than 400 alumni in Australia, including a number from the Riverland, who have gained significant insights into global agriculture. They have produced industry and community change, boosted farm productivity, and fostered new industries and economic growth.
Applications close on June 15. Further information is available on the Nuffield Australia website.
