RAS Foundation Rural Scholarships
Rural Scholarships are available to support individuals in NSW who demonstrate a passion for rural and commitment for any career that will ensure the future success of rural and regional NSW.
Scholarships of $6,000 for full-time study or $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 physiotherapy, engineering, teaching, agricultural science, horticulture, medicine and commerce - and almost everything in between. You could be studying at University, TAFE or VET courses, on campus or by distance learning. However applicants all have one thing in common - a desire to play an active part in the future of rural NSW.
Applicants for a Rural Scholarship must:
Be enrolled in or applying for study in any accredited tertiary 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
Be an Australian citizen or permanent resident
Applications for the 2018 Rural Scholarships will close 30th September 2017.
