Nuffield Scholarships


Nuffield Scholarships are a highly respected and prestigious award in the red meat sector.

Scholars travel internationally and observe, reflect and learn about global agriculture practices and the contexts they're operating in – and bring insights, ideas and information back to share in New Zealand.

Five Nuffield Scholarships are awarded each year in New Zealand. Competition for places is intense – and past scholars often describe the experience as "life changing". 

The scholarships are for about 6 months. At the start you'll join up with Nuffield scholars from all over the world for a conference. You'll then map your programme of study, which will be based on a research topic you nominate and will have a global focus. You'll write reports and create presentations on your findings – but will have good support to do this.
