Bashford-Nicholls Trust Scholarships

About This Project

BAF manages the scholarships provided by the Bashford-Nicholls Trust.  This trust operates two dairy farms in South Taranaki with the aim of generating surpluses to enable scholarships for agriculture and veterinary science study and research.

BAF has developed and now manages an exciting and future focused scholarship programme that has extended the impact of the scholarships offered through the Bashford-Nicholls trust.  The exciting new scholarship programme was launched in September 2017.  Four scholarship tiers now support PhD, Masters, Undergraduate and vocational programmes of study.

Working in partnership with PKW, Te Karaka Foundation and CommunityForce, an online scholarship portal was developed to streamline access to Taranaki based scholarships.

Bashford-Nicholls scholarships are available for applications in October each year by visiting

BAF will also launch a new Bashford-Nicholls Premier Award in April 2018 offering up to $50,000 per year towards high impact research in the fields of agriculture or veterinary science.
