SCHOLARSHIPS FOR AUSTRALIAN PRIMARY PRODUCERS

 

Nuffield Australia is known as the country’s leading agricultural scholarship organisation. It a unique program that awards primary producers with a life-changing scholarship to travel and study an agricultural topic of choice.

For 70 years, Nuffield Australia has built capacity for individual producers, their businesses and the agricultural industry more broadly.

Scholars are selected annually as people who are committed and passionate about farming or fishing, are at the leading edge of technology uptake and potential future leaders. Scholars continue to be involved with Nuffield after they complete their final reporting commitments and along with investors, make Nuffield one of the most influential agricultural networks in Australia.

 

Applications are now closed for 2022 scholarships. Visit the "How to Apply" section of this website for more details to apply next year.

 

Please note, to be awarded a 2023 scholarship, an application and interview process is held in 2022 and the program commences in 2023.
