2021 Science and Innovation Awards for Young People in Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry

Grant applications are now open for the 2021 Science and Innovation Awards for Young People in Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry. If you’re 18-35 and want to make a difference in agriculture, this is your chance to apply for a grant of up to $22,000 to fund your project that will benefit Australia’s primary industries.

The Science Awards encourage young scientists, researchers, innovators, farmers, fishers, foresters, extension officers, industry advisers and others actively engaged in the agriculture sector who have an original and innovative project that will contribute to the ongoing success and sustainability of Australia’s agriculture, fisheries and forestry industries. The Science Awards have already helped 261 young Australians make their ideas a reality and showcase their talent to the world.

There are eleven industry Science Award categories open for applications: biosecurity and digital innovation; cotton; eggs and poultry (layers); forest and wood products; grains; horticulture; meat and livestock; pork; red meat processing; viticulture and oenology; and wool.
