MIA Scholarships open until 27 November

Posted on Thursday, 16 November 2023

Applications are open for the Meat Industry Association’s 2024 Scholarship programme.

Geared towards tertiary students choosing a career in the red meat sector, this programme offers up to four new scholarships, catering to both undergraduate and postgraduate positions.

For undergraduates, the scholarship offers a generous annual award of $5,000 for each of the three years of study. Postgraduate positions come with a substantial $10,000 annual stipend for up to two years.

MIA scholars not only receive financial support but also benefit from mentorship, networking opportunities across the sector, and assistance in securing study-related projects or vacation work within the industry.

Encouraging applications from a broad spectrum of fields, the MIA is accepting various disciplines to meat processing, marketing, or exporting and welcome applicants from diverse backgrounds and aim to support those facing barriers to further education.

The scholarship programme is open to New Zealand citizens or permanent residents enrolled in tertiary institutions.

The application deadline for these scholarships is Monday 27 November. Detailed information can be found on the MIA website.
