The AW Howard Memorial Trust was established by the Australian Institute of Agricultural Science (now AIAST) in 1964 to commemorate the unique contribution of Amos Howard in the use of subterranean clover as a pasture plant in Australia. In 1889 Amos William Howard found subterranean clover (Trifolium subterraneum) growing. He recognised its great promise and was the pioneer of its use in sown pastures. Through Amos Howard's foresight, devotion and tireless effort, the value of subterranean clover was firmly established and has become the most important pasture plant in Australia. It has multiplied flocks and herds by transforming millions of acres of infertile soils into productive pasture land and increased our harvests by restoring the fertility of large tracts of worn out wheat lands. The aim of the Trust is to encourage and promote research and investigation in the fields of natural science and social science, including economics which relate to the development, management and use of pastures.
The scholarship value is $5000 in a fortnightly Stipend payment type.
