Sugar Industry Research Awards

As a component of SRA’s investment in industry capability, we offer opportunities for researchers who provide services to the Australian sugar industry via Research Awards.

These awards are intended to encourage innovative thinking and allow participants to conduct small projects which can clearly demonstrate benefits to the Australian sugarcane industry. These projects may be used to develop research skills and/or explore new and innovative ideas.

The Sugar Industry Research Awards will close for applications on 1 October.

SRA will only fund up to two Research Awards per year and therefore, to be considered, applications must be highly innovative and/or develop or enhance critical research skills in order to deliver future industry opportunities.

For more information, please see the application kit and guidelines below.
