The Science Awards encourage young scientists, researchers, innovators, farmers, fishers, foresters, extension officers, industry advisers and others actively engaged in the agriculture sector who have an original and innovative project that will contribute to the ongoing success and sustainability of Australia’s agriculture, fisheries and forestry industries. The Science Awards have already helped 261 young Australians make their ideas a reality and showcase their talent to the world.
There are eleven industry Science Award categories open for applications: biosecurity and digital innovation; cotton; eggs and poultry (layers); forest and wood products; grains; horticulture; meat and livestock; pork; red meat processing; viticulture and oenology; and wool. Each category includes a $22,000 grant, and is generously supported by the research and development corporations and industry organisations as our Science Award partners.
This competitive annual grants program assists young Australians aged 18-35 to conduct new and creative research that will benefit Azustralia’s primary industries.
Winners of the industry category Science Awards are then invited to apply for the Minister for Agriculture, Drought and Emergency Management’s Award, which provides additional funding for an extended research project.
