Applicants must be a resident in Wairarapa or have strong links with the region, and:
- have a focus on pastoral farming with a planned career path
- a strong desire to expand their knowledge and interest in agriculture
The Peter Laing Memorial Trust Grant Round 2024 closes at 4pm on Friday 10 November.
