David Bedbrook Bursary

A bursary for those passionate about West Australian agriculture

David Bedbrook had a long professional career as an Agricultural Consultant.  In recognition of the immense contribution that David Bedbrook made to the Association of Agricultural Consultants (AAAC(WA)) and to consulting as a profession the AAAC(WA) has established the ‘David Bedbrook Bursary’.

The David Bedbrook Bursary has been developed to support the next generation of agricultural leaders, who will take up the challenge of farming for the future.  It is for young people who are passionate about agriculture, with a keen interest in the future of our industries and who are ready to expand their networks and learn new skills.

  • A bursary of $1,500 for a student in their 2nd for use in their 3rd year, studying in a relevant Agriculture or Agribusiness Degree;
  • Two weeks placement with an Agricultural Consultant that gives students first-hand exposure to modern agricultural practices and work placement experience,
  • Professional development workshops and mentoring;
  • Opportunities to network and gain knowledge at a range of industry events.
