Applications open in 2022.
A BBM Scholarship is an $8,000 grant to support young Australians to become practical, holistic leaders of the future who are aligned to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.
They are a once in a lifetime opportunity for young Australian talent to experience the most exciting, cutting-edge developments in their industry in Australia or overseas.
In response to the events of 2020, BBM has redesigned its scholarship program to include a suite of hands-on, personalised learning opportunities for leadership in a post-COVID world.
A BBM scholarship is an opportunity to shine, exclusively for young VET trained people in agriculture and trades with brilliant ideas and a passion for sustainability in their industry and a vision for Australia’s future.
Focus on Sustainability
A focus on sustainability enables scholars to become practical, holistic leaders of the future who create the change they want to see in their industry. Our scholarships are aligned to the roadmap for sustainability, the UN Sustainable Development Goals. The UNSDGs are already implemented as a blueprint for Australia’s industries, and BBM Scholars will be prepared to join the movement with training from our partner UN Youth Australia.
Develop your Strengths
Scholars develop their individual strengths through intensive, one-on-one personal coaching and mentoring work with a mentor who is not only a leader in their field but also matched specifically to the learning and development goals of the scholar.
The program will take scholars out of their comfort zone, challenge their knowledge and view of the world and give them the confidence needed to put forward solutions and ideas.
Grow your Network
The new scholarship program brings scholars from agriculture, horticulture and trades together to inspire ideas and explore solutions for a sustainable, significant Australia.
It will bring together a new generation of leaders, to explore together what success looks like for them as individuals, as professionals and as decision makers in a post-pandemic Australia.
BBM Scholars draw from the experience and insight of their mentors from an extensive pool of industry trail blazers, from education and training experts to alumni in their own field and industry leaders and host companies.
This network of players brings you quality learning and career development opportunities for young talent that in turn boost the innovation, sustainability and growth in their industries.
Gain Hands-on Experience
BBM Scholars are encouraged to travel and see Australia and the world through the lens of your industry! Self-directed industry experiences and hands on work placements remain at the heart of a BBM Scholarship. Scholars explore their options with their mentors and receive up funds to travel to any destination in Australia or the world to learn from industry leaders through observation, hands-on experience and discussion.
