AGMARDT Leadership Scholarship 2018/19 Intake Open


Five new AGMARDT scholarships are available for leadership and governance training within the agribusiness sector.

AGMARDT are offering up to five Scholarships to the value of up to $15,000 (Incl. GST) for each scholarship awarded to assist applicant to attend courses or a personal development programme or an overseas business school.

AGMARDT supports initiatives that develop future leaders and improve the leadership and governance skills of individuals involved in agribusiness. There is limited depth of leadership and governance skills within the agribusiness sector, and there are those who are missing development opportunities on a regional basis, which has the potential to limit New Zealand’s ability to take advantage of beneficial market opportunities.

The Leadership Scholarship provides an opportunity for individual applicants to:

  • achieve their potential through a personalised development plan
  • develop and advance their management, leadership and governance skills
  • participate in management, leadership and governance programmes that make a positive difference to agribusiness and are aligned with AGMARDT’s strategic interests

The Leadership Scholarship is available for individuals wishing to advance their leadership or governance skills necessary to take on future leadership roles within agribusiness and beyond.

We believe that the success of agribusiness will be driven by talented and inspired leadership.

Applications close 5pm on 28 September 2018
