Our agriculture awards connect back to our heritage of the Big Brother Movement, where young men migrated from the UK to work on the land.
Now our awardees have the opportunity to travel anywhere overseas to learn more about agriculture through work experience placements. Past awardees have worked on beef farms, learned about cropping techniques and technological advancements in agriculture, to name just a few.

In 2018 we’re offering 8 awards in agriculture, agronomy, agribusiness and production horticulture. In your application, be sure to include the reasons why it is valuable to learn about your area of interest overseas and how you might be able to contribute to the development of your industry and community upon your return.
