We already partner with a range of industry sponsors to help grow and support the next generation of leaders and now we’re looking for organisations to get involved, share their experiences and sponsor individuals through their final two years of university.
AgriFutures Australia General Manager, Communications & Capacity Building, Belinda Allitt said it’s important to focus on the next generation of leaders and to do this well we’re expanding our network to organisations who are committed to developing young people in agriculture.
“The AgriFutures™ Horizon Scholarship attracts students who are collaborative, dynamic, and passionate with the capability to be future leaders of our industries,” said Ms Allitt.
“We want to match our Horizon scholars with organisations who see the world in the same way and who want to make a difference to their communities.”
Ms Allitt said the AgriFutures™ Horizon Scholarship had the potential to be an in-house graduate program for organisations who may not have formal graduate programs yet they are looking for potential employees who really understand their business.
“This is a great opportunity for any organisation who is committed to Australian agriculture by training, mentoring and supporting a young person through the final two years of their degree.”
