Applications open for 2021 RASF Rural Scholarship program

Posted on : 01 July 2020

The Royal Agricultural Society of NSW Foundation (RASF) is once again lending a helping hand to regional and rural New South Wales students studying at university, TAFE or an registered training organisation, with applications now open for its 2021 Rural Scholarship program.

The grant which continues the RASF’s mission to build strong and vibrant NSW communities provides financial support to selected part-time and full-time tertiary students to assist in their education and ideally see them return to regional NSW with their new skill-set.

RASF Manager Cecilia Logan says the program aims to help the youth of country NSW and support the future of regional communities.

“The heart of any community is its people and its future sits with the next generation, this scholarship was created to support regional and rural students acquire skills that we hope one day they will bring back to their local town or other regional areas,” Mrs Logan said.

2020 saw 73 students from around the state receive study grants of $3000 for part-time and up to $6000 for full-time study.

They range in scope from budding veterinarians and physiotherapists to mental health practitioners and mechanical engineers.

Applications for the 2021 Rural Scholarship program will close 7 September and all regional and rural students studying at university, TAFE NSW or an accredited college are encouraged to apply.
