This scholarship will allow Rob to travel the world to study the effects of fire in agriculture. This is a highly relevant topic in Australia’s agricultural environment at the moment and as such, Rob will be reporting to industry on the completion of his studies.

Rob’s family were all ecstatic at the news and were by his side at a special award presentation in Hobart on Thursday evening, September 18th.

The VFFA offered its full support to Rob during the application period. VFFA President, Peter Cannon, the Executive and VFFA members wish Robert every success during his time overseas and where ever his studies may take him in the future.

Congratulations Rob, we know that you will fulfil this role with pride and professionalism.
