Applications for the farm nutrient co-operative’s annual scholarship programme close on October 30, 2015.

Ballance scholarships are awarded to four successful candidates, providing $4000 each year for up to three years of tertiary level study in general primary industry or in process engineering. The scholarships are open to immediate family members of Ballance shareholders or company employees.

Warwick Catto, Science Strategy Manager at Ballance said New Zealand is rich with diverse opportunities for agricultural and engineering students.

Graduate development programmes are run by agricultural-focused businesses, right through to the Ministry for Primary Industries, which could lead to a career setting biosecurity initiatives or creating policy and standards to keep our sector safe. These are specific pathways for career development and all start with the right tertiary degree,” he said.
