Make the most of your science career with QAAFI
COMPLETE your studies with QAAFI and we'll help you to achieve your academic goals in agriculture and food science. QAAFI research projects are designed to help you develop high-level research skills in the areas of tropical and subtropical food, fibre and agri-business research. Working in modern laboratories, alongside leading researchers, successful students have the opportunity to develop important research contacts (including those in associated industries), travel for research and conferences, and gain a highly-regarded Australian qualification.
Follow your passion. Search the QAAFI website for a scientist working in your area of interest. If you need more information, call the scientist and ask them to tell you more about their field or project. As you’ll see from the QAAFI website, our centres are divided into three main research areas – animal, plant, nutrition and food. Set aside some time to explore the links and read our researcher profiles. When you find an area of interest, you're welcome to contact the researcher directly.

The Australia Awards aim to promote knowledge, education links and enduring ties between Australia and our neighbours through Australia's extensive scholarship programs.
The Australia Awards initiative will, over time, build a new generation of global leaders with strong links to Australia.
The Australia Awards brings the Australian Agency for International Development (AusAID), the Department of Industry, Innovation, Science, Research and Tertiary Education (DIISRTE) and the Australian Centre for International Agricultural Research (ACIAR) scholarships together under the Australia Awards program.
