The Yitpi Foundation has been established to encourage and promote research and education in the fields of:
- crop science, particularly in relation to the wheat industry in southern Australia; and
- social science, including the linguistics of Australian languages and studies of the cultures of Australian Aborigines, particularly in relation to land usage.
Application for a Research Award or Grant shall be invited on a southern Australia wide basis from persons who have appropriate qualifications and have experience in conducting their proposed research or educational project.
The Yitpi Foundation Management Committee may from time to time make a grant for payment of salaries and travel expenses, purchase of equipment or consumable supplies or for any other purpose which the Committee shall think fit.
