ABIF Scholarship Open

The Australian Beef Industry Foundation (ABIF) is calling for applications from those interested in pursuing leadership positions in the beef industry to apply for the ANZ-ABIF Rural Leadership Scholarship to attend the 2014 Kellogg Rural Leaders Program at Lincoln University, Christchurch, New Zealand.

Lincoln University Agriculture faculty is world renowned for the scope of its activities. Many Australians now in industry leadership positions achieved their tertiary training at Lincoln, including those who have attended the Leaders Program.

ABIF has partnered with the ANZ Bank to make this Trans-Tasman scholarship available to young Australians who are keen to enhance their leadership qualifications and bring this training to bear in productive careers in Australian agriculture, particularly in the Australian beef industry.

“There are many members of the Lincoln Alumni now in leadership positions in agriculture and agribusiness in Australia, and this scholarship represents an outstanding opportunity for someone to join this cohort of contributors to a major component of the Australian national economy,” ABIF chairman John Gunthorpe said.

The recipient of this scholarship will be the second Australian to attend the prestigious Kellogg Rural Leaders Program at Lincoln University. Mary Johnson is the 2013 Kellogg Rural Leader Scholar and returns to Lincoln University later this year to complete the program.

Applications close on Friday October 11. Full details of the scholarship are available on the ABIF website.  http://www.abif.com.au/abif-anz-rural-leadership-scholarship-870
