The second round for the Farrer Memorial Travelling Scholarships are now open and will close on Sunday 8th October, 2023.
The Farrer Memorial Trust was established in 1911 to perpetuate the memory of William James Farrer and to encourage and inspire agricultural scientists. Initially it awarded scholarships for ’study or research in agricultural problems’. Later it included the delivery of an annual oration and the presentation of the Farrer Memorial Medal to a distinguished agricultural scientist for service rendered in the fields of research, education, or administration. Scholarships are now designed to support Australian and international travel and/or other learning and development by postgraduate students enrolled for a PhD on any aspect of agricultural cropping research.
Selection will take place to allow travel to be undertaken in the 2023/24 Financial Year (between 1 July 2023 and 30 June 2024).
Applicants must be:
- Postgraduate student enrolled for a PhD on any aspect of field crop research; and
- Citizen or permanent resident of Australia.
As a guide, scholarships will normally be awarded up to the value $7,500.
