Nuffield Australia Farming Scholarship

Applications Open: 1 Apr 2018
Terms: Applications open 1 April
Value: $30,000
Commencement Date: 1 Jan 2019

Nuffield Australia awards Scholarships each year to farmers in Australia. The objective is to increase practical farming knowledge and management skills and techniques generally. These scholarships give Australian citizens the opportunity to study farming practices in New Zealand, Europe, Asia and the Americas and those countries best suited to the Scholar. They will also promote a closer understanding between farmers in the countries visited.

Nuffield Farming Scholarships give a unique opportunity to stand back from your day-to-day occupation, and to study a subject of interest to you. You do not need academic qualifications, but you will need to persuade the Selectors that you have the qualities to make the best use of an opportunity that is only given to a few.

An allowance of $A30,000 will be provided. However, Nuffield will withhold $5,000 of this as an assurance on the submission of an approved report.
