RAS Foundation Rural Scholarships

Funder:  Royal Agricultural Society Foundation

Scholarship Background: Students in regional areas often have to relocate in order to study, leaving behind the support of family and friends and feeling torn between their education and their obligations. Fortunately, assistance in the form of a scholarship can help ease some worries and allow greater freedom to more regularly visit home and lend a hand.

The RASF Rural Scholarship program goes a small way to ensure students from regional areas can chase the same education dreams as students from metropolitan areas.

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.

$ Available: Scholarships of up to $6,000 for full-time study or up to $3,000 for part-time study are available.

Eligibility:  Rural Scholarships are available to support individuals in NSW who demonstrate a passion for rural communities and commitment for any career that will ensure the future success of rural and regional 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

Key Dates: Closes 7 September 2020
