Scholarship Opportunity for Agriculture Leaders

12 July 2019

The Australian Rural Leadership Foundation is pleased to announce The John B. Foundation Innovation in Agriculture Scholarship. The Scholarship has been established for a leader in the agriculture sector to develop themselves and contribute to the greater good of agriculture in Australia. The Scholarship was made possible through the generous support of The John B. Foundation.

The $65,000 Scholarship will fund the successful applicant’s participation in the Foundation’s flagship 15-month leadership program – the Australian Rural Leadership Program – and after graduating, an Overseas Innovation Experience to enhance their contribution to innovation in agriculture.

The Scholarship is open to anyone with leadership experience involved in the agriculture sector including all parts of the supply chain and service industries from paddock to plate. Shortlisted applicants will be asked to identify a possible area of focus for the Overseas Innovation Experience.

Like all ARLP participants, the successful applicant will be required to make an individual contribution of $5,000 (ex GST) towards program costs and lifetime membership of the Fellows Network.
