Status: Closed

The PMA A-NZ Career Pathways Scholarship Program is designed to attract the best and brightest students to begin a career in the fresh produce and floral industry. The program connects the Australian and New Zealand fresh produce industry to future leaders by providing top students the opportunity to attend the Hort Connections Conference and Trade Show in Brisbane, 15-17 June 2020.

In a growing effort to connect new talent with prospective employees, PMA A-NZ will sponsor 15 university students from universities around Australia and New Zealand to attend Hort Connections. Scholarship students will connect with industry professionals at networking opportunities. An industry coach will be assigned to each student to answer questions, introduce them to other industry professionals and simply help them embrace the myriad of opportunities and rewards the produce industry has to offer. Students are also given conference assignments to help them prepare for the event and add more value to their learning experience.

In 2020, successful scholarship participants will also be flown to Melbourne in May to attend and contribute to the PMA A-NZ Fresh Hackathon, encouraging out-of-the-box thinking and bringing fresh perspectives to the fresh produce industry.
