    The Earle Travel Fellowship in Technology 

    The Earle Travel Fellowship is awarded annually to support and encourage young professional engineers and food technologists. The aim of the fellowship is to increase the knowledge and skills of professionals through overseas travel. It is envisaged that the skills gained, and the contacts made, through visiting overseas research and development institutes, and attending international conferences will enable successful candidates to improve technology in New Zealand.

    Applications are invited from young (under 40 years old) members of NZIFST, Engineering NZ, IChemE in New Zealand or PDMA.

    Applications for 2019 close 24 May
