Hort Innovation is partnering with the Churchill Trust to develop tomorrow’s leaders of the Australian horticulture industry, offering three annual Fellowships to drive innovation and transformation within Australia’s horticulture industry.
Funded through the Hort Innovation Leadership Fund and awarded for international research on a directly related topic, the scholarships aim to cultivate new ideas for Australian horticulture. Churchill Fellows undertake research projects that involve visiting and gleaning insights from abroad, with their findings providing benefit to the Australian community.
Covering travel and other associated expenses, each Fellowship is valued at around $26,000.
Who can apply?
The Fellowships are available to anyone working in a registered levy-paying Australian horticulture business, so if you’re an Olive Levy payer, or work for one, you’re eligible to apply.
