Scholarship offers $5,000 a year for students studying ag degrees
A government-run scholarship that supports students studying agriculture-related degrees at university is now taking applications for 2016.
Applications for the Horizon Scholarship are open to first-year university students and need to be submitted by 19 February 2016.
The Horizon Scholarship, an initiative of the Rural Industries R&D Corporation in partnership with industry sponsors, provides $5,000 per year for the duration of a student’s university degree.
The Horizon Scholarship also offers students annual industry work placements, access to industry leaders, professional development assistance, and opportunities to network and gain knowledge at a range of industry events.
RIRDC’s Managing Director Craig Burns said the Horizon Scholarship provides real and practical benefits for the students involved.
“The students involved in the Horizon Scholarship are expanding their networks and learning new skills. Combined with easing the financial burden on students and families, the Scholarship is opening doors for these future agricultural leaders,” Mr Burns said.
“The Scholarship attracts students who are driven, energetic, passionate and want to be future leaders of Australia’s agricultural industries - it is special group of young people and we look forward to welcoming more of them into the Scholarship in 2016.”
To be eligible for the Horizon Scholarship students must be entering their first year of university and studying a degree related to agriculture, such as agricultural science, rural science, livestock/animal science, veterinary science or agribusiness and plant science. Students must also have started their tertiary studies no longer than two years after leaving high school.
Scholarship recipients will be selected on the basis of their commitment to a career in agriculture, as well as their leadership potential and high school academic record. Applications close on 19 February 2016 and shortlisted applicants must be available for a telephone interview in early March 2016. The Scholarship winners are announced at the end of March 2016.
Application forms can be downloaded from the RIRDC website at www.rirdc.gov.au/horizon or by contacting RIRDC on 02 6271 4132.
Sponsors of the Horizon Scholarship are the Australian Egg Corporation, ANZ, the Cotton Research and Development Corporation, the Grains Research and Development Corporation, Horticulture Innovation Australia Limited, McCaughey Memorial Institute, Meat & Livestock Australia, Sugar Research Australia, and RIRDC (Rice and Chicken Meat research programs).
