VET Students encouraged to apply for RASF Scholarship

Posted on : 15 November 2018

New South Wales Vocational Education Training (VET) students are being encouraged to apply for The Royal Agricultural Society of NSW Foundation’s (RASF) VET Scholarship.

The Scholarship, which is available to individuals studying at registered NSW VET institutions such as TAFE or local colleges, offers scholarships of up to $6000 towards full-time study.  

The RAS Foundation aims to support regional and rural student development, with a focus on students bringing their newfound skills back to the communities once they have completed their studies.

RAS Foundation Manager, Cecilia Logan, says the RAS understands the financial strain tertiary education can place on students and how vital it is to support our regional youth,

“Our youth are the future of regional and rural New South Wales and the RASF is proud to support and encourage students,” Cecilia Logan said

“VET Institutions offer unique and valuable skills for regional areas, skills that are required to ensure a strong future for regional communities.

“If you are currently studying or looking to study at a registered NSW VET institution, I encourage you to apply for our scholarship. Let the RASF support you on this journey,” Ms Logan said.

The RASF VET Scholarship offers $6000 for full-time and $3000 for part-time students.

Applications close 10 February 2019
