RASF invests in next generation, announcing recipients of its 2021 Rural Scholarships Program.

26 May 2021

Sixty-six students from across country New South Wales have been given a career-defining boost today after the Royal Agricultural Society of NSW Foundation (RASF) announced the recipients of its 2021 Rural Scholarship and VET Scholarship programs. Supporting students from a variety of industries, the scholarships provide financial assistance for regional and rural students studying at a recognised NSW University or TAFE who have a desire to give back to regional NSW. RASF Manager Cecilia Logan said the program provides financial freedom for students in regional areas or those looking to work in a rural community. "The RASF Rural Scholarship and VET Scholarship programs are vital in assisting students from regional NSW pursue their dream careers," Mrs Logan said. "For most regional students further study requires them to relocate and move away from their families. These scholarships are designed to help make that move or decision a little easier with funding to assist with accommodation, textbooks or income which allows them to focus on their studies," Mrs Logan said. "Our scholars come from every walk of life, but the one thing they have in common is a passion to give back to regional communities." Recipients of the 2021 RASF Rural Scholarship will receive funding of $3000 for part-time study and up to $6000 for full-time study thanks to sponsors including the UNE Foundation, Quayclean, CanAssist, ChemCert, Regional Australia Bank and The Snow Foundation. Since 2007, the Royal Agricultural Society of NSW Foundation (RASF) has invested over $6.2 million into country NSW through its education and community grant programs. This includes over 600 scholarships to students across NSW, including targeted scholarships for regional journalism and those pursuing careers in the Australian wine industry. Applications for the 2022 RASF Rural Scholarships program and 2022 RASF VET Scholarships open July 01, 2021 . For further information, please visit www.rasf.org.au .
