The Farm Biosecurity Program, run by Plant Health Australia and Animal Health Australia, is once again supporting 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. Scholars then produce a written report and communicate the new knowledge and experience to their fellow scholars, farmers and others.
Each Nuffield Scholarship is valued at $30,000.
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 2023 scholarships opened on 21 March 2022. After a round of initial interviews, short-listed candidates will be interviewed in early August, with the final Nuffield National Conference to be held in September 2024.
For more information and to apply go to the Nuffield Australia website.
*Note: The scholarship calendar may be subject to changes due to Covid-19 travel restrictions.
