Open to outstanding graduates with a strong career motivation for dairy research and development (R&D).
Each year, up to three scholarships of $30,000 p.a., plus tuition fees, will be on offer. Recipients will be located at a DairyNZ office, working on a DairyNZ funded industry-relevant farm systems project and co-supervised by DairyNZ. This will ensure graduates are well-supported and mentored throughout their study, and will build strong connections within the industry. On completion of a Master’s degree in farm systems, it is expected that scholars will apply for employment opportunities at DairyNZ as either Doctoral Students studying specialist dairy science fields, or as Graduate Developers.
