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.
