Ballance Scholarships

Each year we offer up to four scholarships to provide a financial boost to students wanting to help shape the future of New Zealand's agricultural sector.


Ballance Agri-Nutrients offers up to four scholarships each year to offer a financial boost to those wanting to help shape the future of food production in New Zealand. Each scholarship is valued up to $4,000 a year and can be held for up to three years. The awards are made to subsidise study at a tertiary level in any field related to agri-business or the primary sector. 

Scholarship applications are open to all New Zealanders, of any age. 

There is a wealth of opportunities, not just on farms and in farm advisory roles, but across many professions from food science through to patent law, accounting and chemical engineering. The Ballance scholarship programme aims to attract and support talented and curious minds from a range of fields of study so our agribusiness sector continues to lead the world in best practice and innovation.

Applications for scholarships open in September each year.
