Are you a farmer looking for a personal and professional life changing opportunity? For more than 60 years Nuffield Australia Farming Scholarships have provided farmers with the inspiration, knowledge and drive to make an on-ground difference to their businesses and the wider agricultural industry.

The Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC) is helping facilitate positive change in the northern grain industry by sponsoring a 2016 Nuffield Scholarship for a northern-based grain grower.

The Scholarship provides a $30,000 bursary to successful applicants to study a topic relevant to their business and industry and incorporates a Contemporary Scholars Conference, Global Focus Program and individual study program. The tenure is 16 weeks over two years with flexibility provided.

Applications are now open for the 2016 round of Scholarships and will be received until 30 June, 2015.

For more information visit the "How to Apply" section of the Nuffield Australia website.
