Rewards aplenty await grain growers across the nation thanks to a unique opportunity on offer through the GRDC's support of the Nuffield Australia Scholarship program.
Growers are being urged to apply for the four GRDC-sponsored Nuffield Scholarships available in 2020.
Each of the GRDC-supported scholarships provides a $30,000 bursary to the successful applicant to study a topic relevant to their business and the broader grains industry. Applications close on June 14 this year.
GRDC Head of Corporate Affairs, Kylie Dunstan, says benefits such as personal and professional development, enriching travel and networking experiences and a chance to contribute to the advancement of the grains industry beckon those growers who are granted scholarships.

Ms Dunstan says the GRDC's long-standing support of the Nuffield Scholarship program is an important investment in industry leadership, skills and capacity.
"Our grain-growing leaders are fundamental to a strong grains industry," she says. "They play an important role in championing policies that directly affect not only growers' profitability, but also the increasingly important need for social licence.
"Ensuring the grains industry has a pool of skilled leaders is vital for its enduring profitability and success, and the GRDC's support of the Nuffield Scholarship program is a very effective mechanism for achieving that end."
