A Gardiner Nuffield Scholarship gives a Victorian dairy farmer an opportunity to study cutting-edge global agriculture, including an opportunity to travel overseas for 14 weeks.
Scholars will be challenged to research topics that add value to the Victorian dairy industry and will benefit from becoming members of the Nuffield alumni of more than 1500 members globally.
Gardiner Dairy Foundation chief executive officer Allan Cameron said programs like Nuffield strengthened the knowledge, experience and networks of current and future dairy leaders.
“Gardiner supports the Nuffield Scholarship program to offer forward thinking Victorian dairy farmers an opportunity to explore best practice in agriculture globally and then share their findings with the local industry,” Mr Cameron said.
Nuffield Australia will award up to 20 scholarships this year. The scholarships are open to farmers, fishers and those in associated industries aged between 28 and 45.
Nuffield Scholars also receive training in communication skills and personal and professional development.
Applications close on Friday, June 17.
Shortlisted applicants will be interviewed during July and August. Successful recipients of the 2023 Nuffield Scholarships will be announced at the Nuffield Australia National Conference in Tamworth in September.
