2020 was a year of change, impacting global economies and changing agricultural markets
There is no better time for proactive agriculturalists to consider a scholarship to understand a post-COVID world

Our global network is what sets the program apart, enabling scholars to learn how other businesses are tackling global issues and barriers

Nuffield Scholars have achieved distinction in many fields. Proof of both the calibre of those selected and the effect and value of the scholarships are such that many have gone on to an extraordinary range of positions. Scholars have become Federal and State Politicians, Chairs and Members of national and regional commodity boards. Many have made a significant impact at a regional and local level, both in community affairs and in farm management. Others have developed careers as advisers and managers both in Australia and overseas.
In every case Scholars attribute a proportion of the responsibility for their later career success to the scholarship and continuing friendships and associations that follow. The learning process continues for life.
Life as a Scholar
Nuffield Scholars are part of a select group of innovative, free thinking people. After study, scholars produce a written report and communicate new knowledge and experiences to others in the industry. Association with the program won’t end when the scholarship concludes. Scholars are scholars for life. There is on-going communication with the alumni, state and national events and conferences and opportunities to apply and be supported through additional courses.
