SRA invests significantly in industry capability with the ongoing future success of the sugar industry dependent upon improving the capability of existing industry employees.
With respect to research funding and encouraging young scientists into our industry, SRA makes available a number of Sugar Industry Postgraduate Research Scholarships (SPRS) every year, tenable at Australian universities and institutions, for postgraduate research study. The purpose of these scholarships is to enable qualified graduates to undertake Research Doctorate or Research Masters study and to facilitate research and training in areas of value to the Australian sugarcane industry.
