Lincoln University Foundation

The Lincoln University Foundation was established to mark the centenary of Lincoln University. It aims 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, which will contribute to the development of New Zealand’s agriculture and related industries.

In principle, the Foundation will support applicants who demonstrate a direct link with land-based industries and who will contribute directly to creating enhanced opportunity for those industries. Student educational scholarships at appropriate overseas universities are also made.

Applications from those who are supported by relationships with others in the industry, particularly in research, teaching and extension, will be welcomed.
