Across agriculture there is a hugely diverse range of jobs on offer for university graduates, including disciplines like biochemistry, agricultural engineering, in-field agronomy, policy advice, investment analysis, and industrial relations to name just a few.

The Horizon Scholarship has been developed to support the next generation of agricultural leaders, who will take up the challenge of farming for the future. It is for young people who are passionate about agriculture, with a keen interest in the future of our industries and who are ready to expand their networks and learn new skills.

Scholarship recipients receive:

  • A bursary of $5,000 per year for the duration of their degree
  • Professional development workshops and mentoring
  • Annual industry work placements that give students first-hand exposure to modern agricultural practices, and
  • Opportunities to network and gain knowledge at a range of industry events.
