• Round three of the Agriculture and Aquaculture Entrepreneurship Program is now open
  • Scholarships of up to $30,000 are available to farmers or other sector innovators
  • The program supports the development of industry and jobs in regional WA

If you live in regional Western Australia, work in agriculture or aquaculture and you have a new idea, invention, technology or practice that you want to investigate, you may be eligible for the Agriculture and Aquaculture Entrepreneurship Program. You can apply for a scholarship of up to $30,000 which can be used for travel to research international or Australian best practice, as well as for local commercialisation, testing and training.


Your application will need to explain the innovation you want to pursue, its commercial benefit to agriculture or aquaculture businesses, how you would share your learnings with others in WA industry and the economic return to WA if the innovation is adopted (such as jobs growth or industry development in regional areas).

You can find out more about the program and how to apply at www.jtsi.wa.gov.au/agriculture-and-aquaculture or by taking part in an information session.
