The scholarship is proposed to be scheduled in and around the Beef Improvement Federation Conference in late May 2020.
This is a 3 ½ day event that includes a half day Young Breeders Symposium, 2 days of papers on the latest research developments and a field tour.
Outside this the Youth Scholarship Program will be customised to the needs of the winner and the breed he/she represents, but it is likely to include a visit to the breed office, visits/stays with leading breeders and study of successful supply chain management programs and attendance of the AGM and Workshop of the National Pedigreed Livestock Council (NPLC) in early May.
ARCBA in liaison with your breed society is able to make appropriate contacts and introductions.
The value of the scholarship shall be in the range of A$12,500 to A$15,000.
The successful applicant may choose to extend the time/activities at his/her own expense.
