Lincoln University plays a significant part in the development of best practice and information sharing within the South Island’s agricultural sector. In 1978 during its centenary year, Alumni set up the Lincoln University Foundation which hosts the Lincoln University Foundation South Island Farmer of the Year, the Foundation’s flagship activity.

The primary purpose of the Foundation is to advance education in the fields of agriculture and related interests in New Zealand. Travel awards are provided for educational purposes, research, or to attend a course of study, lecture, seminar or display.
