Help us grow Nuffield’s future.

Nuffield Scholars belong to a unique, vibrant, and strong community that continues to create positive change in our food and fibre system and for our country. 

To keep New Zealand at the global forefront of food and fibre systems we’re looking for bold, grounded, and innovative leaders from our primary industries, to step forward as potential Nuffield Scholars in 2023 and beyond. 

The world is once again opening-up and it’s hungry for change, fuelled by ideas, energy, and passion.

Increasingly there will be a need for leaders here in New Zealand who have an ability to think critically, who can generate insight and who have a global perspective. This is where Nuffield excels. 
Tell us about the talented people you know in your industry or region.

Often, the strongest applicants for Nuffield Scholarships come from referrals. So, if you know someone in your network you think has the potential to grow further as a leader, shoulder tap them and suggest they apply. 

If you do have someone in mind, they don’t have to be ready to apply for a Scholarship in 2023, but they should be the people you think have the potential to be a Nuffield Scholar at some point in the future.

Tell us about them, so we can tell them about Nuffield. You can email us at nuffield@ruralleaders.co.nz or quickly fill out a form here.

We think the future of food and fibre is in the hands of our bold and our grounded people – those who also give back to their communities and industries.
