Scholarships To Boost Sheep Research

Researchers undertaking tertiary studies that will benefit Western Australia’s sheep industry can now apply for scholarships through the Department of Primary Industries and Regional Development.

Department Sheep Industry Leader Bruce Mullan said the scholarship program would support and encourage researchers in addressing areas that would make a difference for the sheep industry and build capability to help the industry grow in value.

“This program aims to build students’ capabilities to contribute to the sheep industry and value chain, including building knowledge in business and agricultural and animal science,” Dr Mullan said.

The scholarship program is funded by the department and MLA Donor Company (MDC), with support from the Australian Wool Education Trust.
