Trade & Horticulture Scholarships

Meet the 2019 BBM Trade Scholars:

Creating something amazing with your own hands, through manual labour, talent and skill is one of the most rewarding aspects of a trade career.

Being your own boss is a realistic option if you have learnt a trade, and you can carve your own niche to suit your personal interests. Women are increasingly excelling in some of the traditional male domains, reviving some trades with new approaches.

We work closely with our industry and training partners to ensure your BBM scholarship places you ahead of the game and on top of the current industry trends, including sustainability of materials and processes.

The BBM Global Trade Scholarship is your opportunity to go overseas, follow your passion, explore the possibilities and create the career you love. In 2019, there are also three Innovation Scholarships in Metal Manufacturing, Auto Electrical and Green Infrastructure.

The next application round opens in May 2020.

From orchards to herb gardens, from botanical gardens to inner city pocket farms, from creating new cultivars to devising therapeutic gardening programs – there are no limits to where your career in horticulture can take you.

Whatever your passion within the world of plants and gardens, if you have a vision for your industry, for your career and for bringing innovative approaches to Australia we want to hear about them.

If you are passionate about landscape construction, including green infrastructure, share your ideas and apply under the construction category.
