2020 is a year of change that will significantly impact global economies and change agricultural markets.

Now is the time for Australia’s proactive agriculturalists to consider a Nuffield Scholarship that will provide the opportunity to research important rural concepts, techniques and systems that will secure the industry’s future in a post-COVID world.

With applications for the 2021 Nuffield Scholarship program now open, farmers wanting to make positive change in their own businesses, communities and the broader agriculture sector will have the chance to do just that.

Each scholarship is valued at $30,000, and with 20 on offer in 2021, the application period will run until Friday, 11 September 2020. Interviews will take place across September and October.

Scholars undertake a global study program, researching their chosen topic across 14 weeks. 2021 scholars will have a small reduction in the group travel component, shifting from six to four weeks.

Open to farmers, fishers, and those in associated industries between 28-45 years of age, applying for a Nuffield Scholarship is done online via the Nuffield Australia website.

It is an inclusive and unique program that suits candidates who want to learn and grow in their businesses, and no tertiary qualifications are required.

Applications are open from Monday, 29 June to Friday, 11 September 2020. For more information, or to apply, visit http://nuffield.com.au/
