Applications for the 2019 Nuffield Scholarships are now open. Farmers and farm managers between the ages of 28 and 45 are encouraged to apply for scholarship which this year carries the theme 'Produce Change'.
Nuffield Australia CEO Jodie Dean said the theme ‘Produce Change’ was inspired and encouraged by both the successes of existing Scholars and the next wave of farmers, who are redefining agriculture in an age of unprecedented technological advances and globalisation.
“Producing change goes straight to the heart of what we do at Nuffield. Nuffield Scholars research and deliver practical change that adds real value to farm businesses and the Australian community more broadly,” Ms. Dean said.
This year, there are up to 25 scholarships on offer, each valued at $30,000.
Each scholarship runs for 18 months and enables farmers to travel overseas for 16 weeks, to discover and learn from some of the best operators in the business, who are making a meaningful impact on their industry, and to share those learnings back home.
