Investing in change that
benefits everyone in Victorian dairy

Since 2000, the Gardiner Foundation has been investing in change that benefits everyone in the Victorian dairy industry, helping to create places where people want to live, work and invest. We welcome opportunities to work with people, communities, businesses and organisations to make this happen.

Strategic Priorities

Nuffield Farming Scholarship

Gardiner offers funding for one Victorian dairy farmer to join the Nuffield Farming Scholarship program. It is an opportunity to gain a global perspective on agriculture and food and fibre production. Applications are now open and close on May 31 2024. Shortlisted applicants will be interviewed during July and August.
