This scholarship has been founded in memory of the late Mr John Robert Barker, and is available to students undertaking research in connection with primary production in South Australia (more particularly in the livestock and wool industries).

One scholarship is available to a full-time student enrolled in an Honours program at the University of Adelaide who is undertaking a relevant research project. Graduates of other universities are also eligible to apply.

Applicants must be Australian or New Zealand Citizens or permanent residents of Australia undertaking study as a Commonwealth supported student and must remain enrolled on a full time basis in the program for which the Scholarship was approved. 

Selection of the successful candidate will be made according to academic merit and relevant research.

The Scholarship must be taken up in the year in which it is offered: acceptance of the Scholarship cannot be deferred. If a student declines the Scholarship offer, the Scholarship will be offered to the next eligible student.

Students in receipt of other University of Adelaide Scholarships may apply for this scholarship.
