The recipient of the Trans-Tasman Exchange will embark on a trip around New Zealand, visiting Angus studs, commercial operation, feedlots and attend field days and sales. The exchange will involve moving throughout the country experiencing the New Zealand beef industry and the strength of the Angus breed globally.
Sponsored by the New England Travel Center and the Angus Australia Foundation, the scholarship provides annually an Angus Australia member aged between 18 and 30 years of age the opportunity to travel around New Zealand.
The scholarship covers return airfares for the recipient to travel to New Zealand, $1000 spending money and assistance to organize a tour to various seed-stock and commercial breeders across the country.
The scholarship recipient is encouraged to spend at least four weeks in New Zealand to make the most of the opportunity.
In return, Angus New Zealand annually sends a Generation Angus NZ member across to Australia for a similar tour.
