Applications for the 2023 AgriFutures Horizon Scholarship Program are now open. Students entering their final two years of an undergraduate degree who are passionate about the future of Australian rural industries are encouraged to apply.
The AgriFutures Horizon Scholarship is a collaboration between many of the Research and Development Corporations (RDC’s), along with Cooperative Research Centre for Developing Northern Australia, FMC Australasia, AgriProve and Kalyx to provide eligible university students with a $10,000 bursary over two years and plenty of opportunities to develop their leadership skills and expand their networks. As part of the Program, students also attend an annual four-day professional development workshop and complete two weeks of industry work placements per year.
The Horizon Scholarship Program is open to students studying agriculture-related or STEM degrees with major studies and/or subject selections that align to agriculture.
To be eligible to apply students must:
- Be an Australian citizen or permanent resident
- Be studying an undergraduate degree at an Australian university
- Be entering the final two years of their degree in 2023.
Scholarship recipients will be selected on the basis of their commitment to a career in agriculture, as well as their leadership potential and tertiary academic record to date.
Applications close Friday, 13 January 2023 at 5pm AEDT. Shortlisted applicants must be available for a telephone interview in February 2023, and scholarship winners will be announced in April 2023.
