Tim Healey Memorial Scholarship
Application open: 20 Aug 2018
Application close: 31 Oct 2018,

The Future Farm Industries Cooperative Research Centre (CRC) Board established the scholarship in 2013. A sub-committee of the AW Howard Memorial Trust has administered the program since 2014.
The scholarship represents the CRC and AW Howard Trust’s commitment to ongoing development of Australia’s farming systems. It is also a fitting legacy in memory of Dr Tim Healey’s contribution to this effort.
The post-graduate student must be studying in a field that benefits the future of Australian farming such as:
- livestock management
- farming systems
- farm business management
- woody crops
- on-farm biodiversity or
- socio-economic aspects of farming.
The recipient must:
- currently hold, or been approved for, an existing base scholarship (such as an Australian Government Research Training Program Scholarship (RTPS), formerly Australian Postgraduate Award (APA)), or an industry-based fund of similar merit
- have been accepted in an appropriate full-time Higher Degree by Research program at a recognised Australian university
- meet the selection criteria.
