New Postgraduate Scholarships on Offer
16 May 2012
Six new postgraduate scholarships of $30,000 per annum are being offered by the Faculty of Agriculture and Environment. The scholarships are the result of significant donations to the Faculty last year. In 2011, the Faculty received a gift of more than $8.6 million from the estate of the late Nancy Roma Paech. As a result, three postgraduate scholarships offering a stipend of $30,000 per annum and up to $5,000 per annum for research costs are now available.
The estate of the late FH Loxton, along time supporter of the Faculty, has also provided more funds for postgraduate scholarships which will also be offered at $30,000 per annumand up to $5,000 per annum for research costs.
In addition, research and industry funds are supporting a further 4 scholarships in areas ranging from wheat temperature tolerance, greenhouse gas fluxes after fire, soil carbon assessment to blue green algal blooms in the Murrumbidgee Irrigation Area.

Research Scholarships will be considered for applicants who have submitted a formal application for candidature, and have been offered postgraduate candidature in the Faculty of Agriculture and Environment.
