Each scholarship is valued at $30,000 and Nuffield Australia will award up to 20 scholarships this year.

Nuffield Scholarships are open to farmers, fishers and those in associated industries aged between 28-45. The bursary allows scholars to spend 14 weeks of travel over two years to study a topic important to the industry.

Nuffield Scholars also receive training in communication skills and personal and professional development.

Over the past few years, Nuffield Australia and its counterparts overseas have embraced digital technology to stay connected despite travel restrictions.

Nuffield Australia will continue to provide online learning and virtual connections to the global alumni network and agribusiness leaders.

"A Nuffield Scholarship is a unique opportunity to explore the world to discover new tools, practices and ideas, and forge connections that can improve long-term sustainability," said Nuffield Australia chief executive officer and 2013 Nuffield Scholar, Jodie Redcliffe.

Radcliffe said this year's program has been especially tailored for recipients to navigate the global uncertainty and make the most of being part of the world's most influential agricultural network.

Northern Australian agricultural consultant and current 2022 Nuffield Scholar, Munro Hardy, has just returned from the Contemporary Scholars Conference that saw newly-selected scholars from around the world meet in England.

"There isn't a better place in the world to learn from leaders in agriculture who are stepping up to meet the challenges faced around the globe in water scarcity, biodiversity loss, soil erosion, climate change, supply chains, failing food systems and more," Hardy said.

Applications close Friday 17 June. Shortlisted applicants will be interviewed during July and August. Successful recipients of the 2023 Nuffield Scholarships will be announced at the Nuffield Australia National Conference in Tamworth, New South Wales, in September.
