The Western Australian government is committed to supporting innovation, jobs and sustainable practices in agriculture and aquaculture. Western Australia’s $6.8 billion agriculture sector has huge potential to innovate by working with highly skilled scientists, researchers and international leaders.

If you 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. Up to $30,000 is available to farmers and innovators in the sector for an entrepreneurship scholarship.

Round 4 is expected to open in the first quarter of 2019. You can find out more about the program by reading the Round 3 Agriculture and Aquaculture Entrepreneurship Program Applicant Information document.
