What was it all about?

This investment was established to support Apple & Pear New Horizons Scholarships for young people, used towards the completion of agribusiness studies at Victoria’s Marcus Oldham College. The goal was to help accelerate change in the apple and pear industry. 

In 2017 the scholarship recipient was Jack Bartels, with the scholarship supporting his undertaking of Marcus Oldham’s one-year Diploma of Agribusiness course. In 2018, Jack was awarded a second scholarship under this project, to continue his Associate Degree of Agribusiness at the college.  

More information on Jack and his studies can be found within the project’s full final research report, available from the top of this page.
