Ronald J Lienert Memorial Scholarship

This Scholarship, offered by The University of Adelaide, has been established by the SA pig Industry to perpetuate the memory of Ronald John Lienert, OAM.

Ron Lienert is remembered in the Pig Industry through his contributions to the management of state and national industry agro-political issues, his membership of Industry Boards, committees and working parties, the establishment and operation of Lienert Australia Pty Ltd within agribusiness and his impact on the genetic improvement of the Australian pig herd.

The Scholarship is available for one year and is valued at $12,500 of which $9,000 will be paid as a stipend to the recipient to assist with education and living costs, with the remainder paid to the relevant University school as a contribution to the costs of their Honours research project.

In addition, the Scholarship recipient will be offered the opportunity to participate in off-Campus pig industry activities arranged to widen their understanding of pig production science, establish industry networks and to engage with potential employers.
