VET Scholarship with the Royal Agricultural Society Foundation

Farmer scholarship banner

With agricultural industries and regional communities demanding an increasing diversity of knowledge and skills, NSW Farmers is seeking to support students committed to these industries and communities through its tertiary scholarship program.

The scholarships seek to support students from farming backgrounds who are currently studying at university or TAFE. Students must be in their second year of university study, or first or second year of vocational study to be eligible. In addition, students, their partners, or parents must have held a full producer membership with the association during the past two years.

Through our VET Scholarship Program, the Royal Agricultural Society Foundation supports students studying VET courses through TAFE Illawarra. If you live in a rural or regional NSW community and need a helping hand with your study costs you could be eligible for a scholarship of up to $5,000 (full time) or $2,500 (part time).
