Sir Graeme Harrison Pastoral Livestock Production PhD Scholarship

This scholarship was established in 2021 to support postgraduate research in pastoral livestock production and grazing management at the Lincoln University Pastoral Livestock Production Lab.

Consumers and producers of animal products are increasingly aware of the intricate connections between the health of the land, animals, and humans, as well as of our collective responsibilities to sustain and enhance te taiao for future generations.

Consequently, land users, policy-makers and wider society are calling for alternative approaches to pastoral systems; a call for functionally diversified-adaptive, integrative food pastoral systems that simultaneously operate across multiple scales, from landscapes and foodscapes to healthscapes.


Tuition fees plus $28,000 stipend per annum
