Applications for the next Lincoln-based course close Sunday, 14th November 2021

The Kellogg Rural Leadership Programme has been developing leaders for the rural and agri-food sector since 1979.

Over the last four decades, some of New Zealand’s most successful farm innovators, industry, business, and political leaders have graduated from the Kellogg Programme.

About the Kellogg programme

There are two intakes of 24 participants each year, selected to represent diversity across industry sectors, level of experience, geographical location, gender and ethnicity.

The residential format of the programme creates cohort networks and friendships across the country and industry sectors through the mix of farmers, growers, producers and agribusiness professionals.

We have a strong and proud history, and we continually evolve the programme with content and format reviewed after each course to meet changing industry and participant needs. 

Initially founded by the Kellogg Foundation in USA, Lincoln University secured the rights to run the course in New Zealand from 1979 until NZ Rural Leaders took over administration in 2013.
