Apply now for a 2020 Nuffield Scholarship!
Australia’s leading agricultural research scholarship is once again open to the next generation of growers looking to unearth innovative practices and cultivate the global networks needed to drive change in their businesses.
Applications for the 2020 Nuffield Scholarship program opened on 1 April, and Nuffield Australia is urging young growers with a desire to drive their knowledge and businesses forward to apply.
This year, there are more than 25 Nuffield Scholarships on offer, each valued at $30,000. The application period will run until 14 June and focus on the 2019 theme of Collaborate, Innovate and Cultivate.
In Australia alone, Nuffield has an Alumni of over 400 Scholars. Previous Nuffield scholars from our sector have focused on a diverse range of areas of interest, including:
- Victorian vegetable grower Emma Germano looking at the potential for Australian vegetable exports.
- Victorian herb producer Jan Vydra investigating the evolution and future of urban farming.
- South Australian vegetable grower Scott Samwell researching fusion farming methods to improve crop quality and nutrient density.
Successful recipients of the 2020 Nuffield Scholarships will be announced during the Nuffield Australia National Conference. This will take place at the EKKA precinct in Brisbane from Tuesday 17 to Thursday 19 September 2019.
