Scholarship Benefits

  • The opportunity to research a topic that the scholar believes will add value to the Australian agricultural industry.
  • Become a member of Nuffield Australia to promote agriculture and agriculturally related issues.
  • Become a member of a worldwide network of more than 1,500 Nuffield Farming Scholars, who have enjoyed the unique Nuffield experience.

 Rewards of Nuffield

Nuffield Scholars both in Australia and around the world have achieved distinction in many fields. Positive proof of both the calibre of the scholars selected, and the effect and value of the scholarships are such that a high percentage of scholars have gone on to an extraordinary range of senior positions.

Scholars have become Federal and State Politicians, Chairmen and members of national and regional commodity boards. Many have made a significant impact at a regional and local level, both in community affairs and in farm management. Others have developed careers as advisers and managers both in Australia and overseas.

In every case, Nuffield Scholars attribute a proportion of the responsibility for their later career success to the scholarship and continuing friendships and associations that follow.

The learning process continues for life, being reinforced by annual state tours, the National Conference and an International Conference every third year.

Life as a Nuffield Scholar

Nuffield Scholars are part of a select group of innovative, free thinking people. After the study, scholars produce a written report and communicate the new knowledge and experience to others in the industry.

Association with the Nuffield program won’t end when the scholarship formally concludes. Nuffield Scholars are scholars for life. There is on-going communication with the alumni, events and opportunities to apply and be supported through additional courses.
