The Australian Grape and Wine Authority (AGWA) invests in and directs research, development and extension in the Australian grape and wine sector to enhance the competitiveness of the industry.
AGWA's commitment to academic scholarships is one way in which it supports a competitive Australian wine sector across the whole value chain, 'from vine to glass.'
The scholarships aim to attract postgraduate students to study in wine- and viticulture-related fields.
Scholarships will be awarded on the basis of academic excellence, the quality of the applicant's Curriculum Vitae and the likelihood of the applicant's ongoing involvement and contribution to the Australian wine sector.
Students are encouraged to apply for Australian postgraduate award (APA) scholarships (or equivalent) through their host university.
AGWA offers supplementary or full scholarships, with strong preference given to students who receive an APA or equivalent scholarship.
