Apply now for Horizon study fund
APPLICATIONS for the Horizon Scholarship will close on Friday, February 24.
First-year university students studying agriculture-related degrees are encouraged to apply.
The Horizon Scholarship, an initiative of the Rural Industries Research and Development Corporation (RIRDC) in partnership with industry sponsors, provides $5000 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 managing director John Harvey said the Horizon Scholarship provided real and practical benefits for the students involved and, as a result, would differentiate them from their peers.
Applications close on Friday, February 24, and shortlisted applicants must be available for a telephone interview in March.
Application forms can be downloaded from the RIRDC website at www.rirdc.gov.au/ horizon or by calling (02) 6923 6900.
