Young peo­ple with a pas­sion for the sheep and wool in­dus­try are en­cour­aged to ap­ply for the 2019 Peter West­blade Schol­ar­ship.

In its eighth year, the 12-month schol­ar­ship pro­vides op­por­tu­ni­ties to ex­pe­ri­ence all as­pects of the sheep and wool in­dus­try.

Open to young peo­ple aged 18 to 30, the schol­ar­ship hon­ours the late Peter West­blade, a Lock­hart sheep pro­ducer pas­sion­ate about breed­ing prof­itable sheep, and a sup­porter of young peo­ple in­ter­ested in agri­cul­ture.

The 2018 schol­ar­ship re­cip­i­ents are Tas­ma­nian wool­grower Anna Cot­ton and Joe Walden, from Yass.

Ap­pli­ca­tions close on De­cem­ber 21, with ap­pli­cants short-listed in early Fe­bru­ary for in­ter­views by an in­dus­try panel.
