RAS Foundation VET Scholarships
VET (Vocational Education and Training) Scholarships are available to support individuals in NSW who demonstrate a passion for rural life and commitment for any career that will ensure the future success of rural and regional NSW.
Scholarships of up to $6,000 for full-time study or up to $3,000 for part-time study are available.
There is no limit on the types of courses that qualify or the age of the applicant. You could be studying anything from metal fabrication to child care.
You could be studying at a registered VET (Vocational Education and Training) institution e.g. College or TAFE courses, on campus or by distance learning. All applicants will have one thing in common - a desire to play an active part in the future of rural NSW.
Applicants for a VET Scholarship must:
Be enrolled in or applying for study in any accredited VET (Vocational Education and Training) course at an approved Australian education provider
Demonstrate a desire to contribute to the future of rural NSW
Demonstrate how a scholarship would assist them in achieving their education or training goal
