Apply now for Nuffield Scholarship
The Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC) is encouraging eligible grain growers to apply now for a Nuffield Australia Farming Scholarship in 2019.
The GRDC is sponsoring three Nuffield Scholarships next year, applications for which close on June 15, 2018.
Each of the three GRDC-sponsored Nuffield Scholarships provides a $30,000 bursary to the successful applicant to study a topic relevant to their business and the broader grains industry.
The topics studied by the three GRDC-sponsored 2018 Nuffield Scholarship recipients were: the “robotic revolution” and what growers can do to prepare for increased autonomous technology on-farm; financial risk-management systems in variable climates; and how continuous cropping with the aid of livestock can be sustained in a high-rainfall environment.
