About Us

A Nuffield Scholarship is New Zealand's most respected and prestigious award in the Primary Industry sector. Nuffield Scholarships have been awarded to more than 140 emerging leaders in New Zealand over the past 60 years.

Each year up to five scholarships are awarded to individuals who are identified as future leaders in the sector and industry. Those selected are expected to assume position of greater influence in their field in the future.

Nuffield Scholars come from a wide range of backgrounds from practical hands-on farming across agriculture and horticulture through to policy advisors and agribusiness managers. They all have a close affiliation with practical agriculture and a passion and desire to help shape and lead the future of their industry.

A Nuffield Scholarship provides an opportunity to examine, energise and focus professional and leadership skills. Scholars become part of an international programme and provides a national and international network of friends and colleagues for life.
