Serve-Ag Founder Buz Green has made an extraordinarily generous gift to the University of Tasmania to establish the (LR) Buz Green AM Scholarship in Agricultural Science.
The scholarship, which has been endowed in perpetuity, will provide $5,000 per year for up to four years, to a student undertaking an undergraduate qualification in agricultural science at the University of Tasmania.
