Tim Healey Memorial Scholarship

In December 2013, the CRC announced a new postgraduate scholarship for students in agriculture - the Tim Healey Memorial Scholarship.

The scholarship will be awarded to a Research Higher Degree (RHD) student in a field that benefits the future of Australian farming such as pastures, livestock management, farming systems, agronomy, farm business management, woody crops, on-farm biodiversity or socio-economic aspects of farming.

The value of the scholarship is $10,000 per year and is available for a maximum 3.5 years, subject to the student's satisfactory university approved progress and performance.  It is offered as a top-up scholarship regardless of the value or existence of a student’s base scholarship.

The inaugural recipient will be announced at the CRC's Future Farm Live event in Canberra on 8 April 2014.

Applications close on 31 January 2014.
