Wagyu Fellowship & Scholarship

2020 Wagyu Fellowship & Scholarship Program – open now

The Wagyu Fellowship – 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.

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.
