Australian farmers and others working in food and fibre production are urged to consider how they could use overseas study tours to improve their business and industry, through a Nuffield Scholarship.

In addition to our longstanding scholarship investors, this year the Future Drought Fund (FDF) is investing in at least five scholarships that are specifically available to study drought resilience and support innovation. These scholarships will support applicants to build drought resilience expertise, adapt innovative technology and practices from overseas and share these learnings to advance Australian agriculture.

Nuffield Australia will award up to 20 scholarships this year with each scholarship valued at $35,000. Scholarships on offer include the five drought resilience scholarships, as well as others covering horticulture, grains, dairy, wool, fisheries, cotton and more.

Nuffield Scholarships are open to all those involved in food and fibre production typically aged between 28 and 45. The bursary allows scholars to travel for 14 weeks over the next two years to study a topic important to their industry.

Applications are now open and close on Friday 9 June 2023. Shortlisted applicants will be interviewed during July and August. Successful recipients will be announced at the Nuffield Australia National Conference in Perth from 10-13 September.
