Cotton Australia Final Year Undergraduate Project

Cotton Australia is the peak body for Australia’s cotton growing industry, supporting over 1500 cotton farming families in NSW and Queensland. We foster a world class agricultural industry that’s sustainable, valued for its economic and social contributions and produces a top quality product in demand around the globe.

As part of our commitment to the cotton industry, Cotton Australia seeks to ensure that it has access to a well-trained and motivated workforce. It also seeks to support those who both use and value cotton as a product and those who encourage the next generation of consumers and industry participants.

As part of this commitment Cotton Australia is delighted to support scholarships to students undertaking a final year project relating to the cotton industry.

This scholarship has been enabled by the Cotton Catchments Communities Co-operative Research Centre’s Legacy Fund.
