Scholarships & Opportunities

Generation Angus Trans-Tasman Scholarship

The exchange is offered to one person annually. The trip is intending for an applicant that is looking to kick start their interest (not necessarily an industry established person) and for that person to grow their knowledge to include a global perspective.

Depending on which option the recipient chooses the trip will be in January or September. The duration may be no longer than two months and no shorter than one. The recipient will visit Angus Studs, Commercial Operation, Feed Lots and attend other industry events and field days.

Beef + Lamb New Zealand International Beef Alliance Scholarship

Every year a young New Zealander is sponsored by Beef + Lamb New Zealand to represent their country as a delegate at the International Beef Alliance (IBA) conference. You’ll join the New Zealand delegation and will be accompanied by the person who won the scholarship last year (so, in your second year, you’ll get to go along again).

The conference allows the recipient to be involved in discussions with other beef producers from around the world on what is happening in the beef industry globally and issues such as trade, sustainability and animal welfare.
