Aquaculturists, such as those working in developments in the Kimberley (pictured), can apply for scholarships under the Agriculture and Aquaculture Entrepreneurship Program.  

Thursday 13 April 2017

Funding announced for agrifood innovators

Scholarship applications are open for round two of the State Government's Agriculture and Aquaculture Entrepreneurship Program.

The program forms part of the Science and Agribusiness Connect initiative's suite of programs which are designed to build the capability of the Western Australian agrifood sector.

Three scholarships of up to $30,000 are available this round to enable farmers and individuals engaged in the agriculture or aquaculture sectors to develop and pursue their idea or invention through exposure to international best practice and leaders in their field.

Successful applicants will have an innovative concept or idea within the fields of agriculture or aquaculture that has the potential to broaden the economy and to modernise the agrifood sector.

Applications for round two of the program close at 12pm AWST on 31 May 2017.
