The Australian Grape and Wine Authority (AGWA) is accepting applications until Friday 7 November 2014 for PhD, Masters and Honours scholarships to commence in 2015.
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. Research with Kevin Powell (DEPI, Victoria) and Paul Cooper (ANU) will be focused on the relation between scale insects (Parthenolcanium sp.) and grape vine varieties in southeastern Australia.
Scholarships will commence from 1 January 2015.
