Applications close this Friday 14 June for the program with up to 25 exciting scholarships available to primary producers passionate about the future of agriculture.

Each valued at $30,000, Nuffield Scholarships enable farmers to visit, learn and collaborate with some of the world's leading agricultural enterprises across a wide range of industries.

Speaking from his property in Western Australia, Nuffield Chair and 2000 Scholar Andrew Fowler said there was still time for producers to lodge an application and put themselves forward for the 2020 program.

"We encourage farmers with a passion for their industry, or the drive to take their agricultural career to the next level, to apply for a 2020 Nuffield Scholarship," Fowler said.

"Successful recipients will embark on a 16-week global travel program over an 18-month period, where they will delve into their chosen study topic and connect with an amazing network of people who share their passion.

"There is no such thing as a right or wrong study topic. Our scholarships exist to unearth raw and real talent in Australian agriculture, and to provide the building blocks for sectorial growth."

Fowler said: "However, one of the best aspects of Nuffield is the mentorship and support you receive during your scholarship, both from our executive team and our alumni, as well as the lifelong friendships made globally along on the way.

"Our goal is to ensure Nuffield Scholars have access to the right people, resources and experience they need to grow their agricultural careers and produce change in their industries."
