Perpetual Guardian manages the Kathleen Agricultural Research Trust set up by the late Miss Kathleen Spragg for the benefit of the growth and development of the pastoral industry throughout New Zealand.

The Board of Governors invite applications from scientists, technicians, advisors and consultants, or PhD students holding a relevant tertiary qualification to fund travel within New Zealand or overseas, for the purpose of acquiring further research experience and for training which would be of value to the pastoral industry of NZ.

Applications are open in February and September each year.
