A W Howard Memorial Travel Grant
Agriculture, Veterinary and Environmental Sciences, Economics
The Trust was established by the Australian Institute of Agricultural Science in 1964 to commemorate the unique contribution by the late Amos Howard in the use of subterranean clover as a pasture plant in Australia. The aims of the trust are to encourage and promote research and investigation in the fields of natural science and social science, including economics which relate to the development, management and use of pastures. The awards represent a career development opportunity.
Candidates must be a member of staff of a recognised public research organisation, and have been resident in Australia over the past 3 years. Preference will be given to scientists who have had little opportunity to travel overseas.
The AW Howard Memorial Trust Inc annually awards travel grants of up to $3,500 to scientists to undertake overseas study tours or participate in international conferences related to aspects of pasture research within the aims of the trust.
