The Wagyu Fellowship and Scholarship program aims to facilitate research and training in areas that are beneficial to the Australian Wagyu industry through genetics, nutrition, production and meat science.
A Wagyu Fellowship is a remarkable opportunity to research a topic that you are passionate about and experienced in, that contribute to the improvement of the Wagyu sector. Offered to those not undertaking formal studies, it is open to members of the Wagyu sector.
Applications for the Wagyu Fellowship will be open soon.
The Scholarship is complementary to the Wagyu Fellowship, to allow students to undertake research for the advancement of Wagyu to share with industry, while the Fellowship is open to applicants not engaged in tertiary study.
Provided as a ‘top up’ or ‘technical grant’ for students already receiving remuneration and are, or will be, undertaking post graduate studies in these areas, the scholarship will provide further support to fund research activities undertaken by the student.
Any projects that can be shown to be of value to the Wagyu industry will be considered. This may include any sector of the Wagyu supply/value chain and may include interests such as genetics, breeding, production, nutrition, processing, and meat science.
Objectives of the program are to develop younger leaders for the Wagyu industry; increase the education, experience and skills within the Wagyu industry; develop lasting friendships across the international Wagyu industry and advance knowledge and learning in the Wagyu industry.
Within the scope of the Wagyu Scholarship program is the option to undertake the Dr Simon Coates Scholarship for Veterinary and Reproductive Science for students who are studying veterinary science or researching reproction and breeding in relation to Wagyu.
Through the Dr Simon Coates Scholarship for Veterinary and Reproductive Science, we can continue to recognise the great contributions of one of our founding members and honour his passion for the advancement of Wagyu.
Applications for Wagyu Scholarships will be open soon.
