Ag schol­ar­ships

Southern Riverina news - - RURAL OUTLOOK -

Fu­ture Farm­ers Net­work — the na­tional or­gan­i­sa­tion that aims to em­power, sup­port and re­tain young peo­ple in Aus­tralian agri­cul­ture — is of­fer­ing three $1,000 schol­ar­ships to study an ac­cred­ited course of the ap­pli­cant’s choice with Ru­ralBiz Train­ing.

FFN ex­ec­u­tive of­fi­cer Toby Locke said ed­u­ca­tion was one of the key pri­or­i­ties for FFN mem­bers in the 2017 sur­vey.

‘‘On­line train­ing means that stu­dents can study from home, and can ar­range their times to fit around their farm sched­ules.

‘‘Ru­ralBiz Train­ers are usu­ally de­gree qual­i­fied farm­ers them­selves who can of­fer very prac­ti­cal feed­back to their stu­dents.’’
