STUDENTS looking to develop their careers in agribusiness are urged to apply for a scholarship designed to nurture future leaders in the sector.
Applicants for the AgriFutures Horizon Scholarship must be an Australian citizen or permanent resident enrolled full-time in their first year of an agriculture related degree at an Australian University, with a maximum two-year gap between high school and tertiary study.
Member for Murray Plains Peter Walsh said successful applicants would receive $5000 per year for the first two years of their degree.
“The scholarship program is complemented by professional development workshops and two weeks of work placement for each year of the scholarship,” he said.
Following a review of all written applications, short-listed applicants will participate in a phone interview after which successful applicants will be selected.
Successful students will be notified in May.
To apply for the scholarship, students must complete the online application form at agrifutures.com.au
Applications will close at 5pm, February 23.
