Become a future rural leader with the 2022 AgriFutures Horizon Scholarship

 

University students have less than four days left to apply for the 2022 AgriFutures Horizon Scholarship, with applications closing on Friday, 14 January 2022.

 

In partnership with a range of industry sponsors, the AgriFutures Horizon Scholarship is an initiative to support the next generation of leaders that will drive the future prosperity of Australian rural industries and communities.

 

The sponsors of the AgriFutures Horizon Scholarship Program include Australian Eggs, Australian Wool Innovation (AWI), Cooperative Research Centre for Developing Northern Australia (CRCNA), Dairy Australia, Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC), Meat & Livestock Australia (MLA), Hort Innovation, FMC Australasia, Cotton Research and Development Corporation (CRDC), and the AgriFutures Thoroughbred Horses, Rice and Emerging Industries Programs.

 

The scholarship provides students with a $10,000 bursary over the final two years of their undergraduate degree, and opportunities to build leadership skills and collaborate across rural industries.

 

Scholars also attend an annual four-day professional development workshop and complete two weeks of industry work placement. Throughout their time in the program, they are exposed to a range of industry networks, including opportunities to attend industry events, gaining vital skills and insights across traditional and emerging areas of Australian agriculture.

 

AgriFutures Australia Managing Director, John Harvey, says that in order to build prosperous and sustainable rural industries, it is important to attract and retain a skilled and passionate workforce, including ‘up and coming’ leaders.

 

“Building the capacity, knowledge and skills of Australia’s future workforce is vital to the growth of Australian agriculture and a priority right across our rural industries. This scholarship provides students with a platform for networking, forward thinking and idea creation needed to forge a career in the industry,” said Mr Harvey.

 

In recent years, the Horizon Scholarship offering has been broadened to include STEM degrees, recognising the importance of collaboration across a variety of disciplines to support the growth of rural industries.

 

“The AgriFutures Horizon Scholarship attracts students who are diverse, passionate and progressive, with the capability to be future leaders of the Australian agricultural workforce. Providing these students with the opportunity to come together in the same room creates a platform for collaboration which is invaluable for the scholars and rural industries alike. I thank all of the industry sponsors who make this possible and share our commitment to building the capacity of future leaders,” said Mr Harvey.

 

To be eligible for the 2022 AgriFutures Horizon Scholarship students must:

  • Be an Australian citizen or permanent resident
  • Be studying an undergraduate degree at an Australian university

Students who are passionate about the future of Australian agriculture are encouraged to apply.

 

Scholarship recipients will be selected on the basis of their commitment to a career in agriculture, as well as their leadership potential and tertiary academic record to date.

CSIRO’s Postgraduate Top-Up Scholarship Program provides enhanced opportunities in science and engineering for outstanding graduates enrolling each year at Australian tertiary institutions as postgraduates for research leading to the award of a PhD. CSIRO PhD Top-Up scholarships are now being offered in over 50 CSIRO research areas, for funding commencing in 2020.

PhD Top-Up Scholarships are available to postgraduate students who have gained (or expect to gain), first class honours or equivalent in relevant research areas.  Students must also expect to receive a Research Training Program (RTP) scholarship, or an equivalent primary scholarship, commencing in late 2019 or early 2020. Joint supervision of students by a university and a CSIRO supervisor is required and such joint supervisory arrangements must be consistent with the Higher Degree by Research Regulations of the host university. The students’ research will be co-supervised by CSIRO and university scientists.  

The CSIRO Top-Up Scholarships are supplementary awards, which add to the student’s support from a principal scholarship awarded by another body, e.g. Australian University RTP scholarship. In all respects recipients of awards will be regarded as students of the University at which they are registered, and all rules relating to degree candidature and the primary award will apply. In particular, recipients will undertake research at CSIRO as a student of the University concerned, and are not employees of CSIRO.

Recipients of CSIRO Supplementary Postgraduate Awards are required to be Australian citizens or permanent residents. However, in fields in which there is a national skill shortage, awards may go to overseas candidates, provided that the international candidate is prepared to seek permanent residency as soon as possible within Australian Government policy guidelines. 

The Australian Animal Health Laboratory (AAHL) helps protect Australia’s multi-billion dollar livestock and aquaculture industries, and the general public, from emerging infectious disease threats. It is a high-containment facility designed to allow scientific research into the most dangerous infectious agents in the world.  For more information please see our website at Australian Animal Health Laboratory (AAHL).

If you have already commenced your PhD studies, you must be less than 12 months into your PhD at 1 January 2020.

International applicants must have the appropriate immigration approvals to allow them to take up the scholarship.

Applications will be assessed on:

  1. Quality and relevance of student project: The primary assessment criterion for a CSIRO Postgraduate Scholarship is the quality and relevance of the project being proposed. The research must be aligned with, the advertised priority research area.
  2. Academic calibre of the student: The quality of the student is also critical to the assessment of a scholarship and candidates must hold (or expect to gain) a relevant first class honours (or equivalent) degree from a recognised University.
