Why Choose Nuffield?

A Nuffield Farming Scholarship is one of New Zealand’s most valued and prestigious awards in the primary industry sector and part of a global agri-food network promoting global vision, leadership and innovation.

The Nuffield global network provides scholars with access to international leaders in the agri-food sector, and the best production, management and marketing systems around the globe. New Zealand scholars have been hosted by institutions, organisations and businesses varying greatly in purpose and scale – from the White House in the United States to a Girl’s Agricultural School in  Kenya.

The 12-month programme allows participants to spend time away from the business and travel to observe, immerse, reflect and learn about global agricultural practices and the contexts they are operating in. The experience helps scholars gain new insights and ideas to bring back to New Zealand to share, implement and influence positively, decisions that affect the agri-food sector and our rural communities.
