SRDC- Applications open for TRAILblazers leadership scholarship

SRDCThe Sugar Research and Development Corporation is offering a scholarship for an established leader to attend the Training Rural Australians in Leadership (TRAIL) Blazers eight day residential course in Canberra from 11th – 19th October 2013.

Facilitated by the Australian Rural Leadership Foundation, this course is designed for experienced leaders who currently hold a senior position in agriculture.

The program aims to build the capacity of rural leaders, expand their leadership frameworks, establish new relationships, and develop a fresh perspective on how to resolve complex issues for rural Australia.

2012 TRAILblazers recipient, Graham Bonnett from CSIRO described the course as a life changing experience and an excellent opportunity to network with other people from rural industry groups.

SRDC Executive Director Annette Sugden, said we will award one scholarship placement on the next course for a senior leader currently employed by the sugarcane industry.

“It is important we continue to invest in the capacity of our sugarcane leaders, who are ultimately the ones responsible for shaping the future of our industry,” Ms Sugden said.

The SRDC scholarship includes course registration fees, return airfares, and accommodation the night before and after the course in Canberra.

To apply, download the application form from the SRDC website and send your completed application to SRDC Program Manager, Bianca Cairns by 16 August 2013.
