Women in rice scholarship
SunRice reminds women involved in the rice industry that applications for the 2019 Jan Cathcart Scholarship close on Saturday, October 13.
Now in its fifth year, the scholarship is valued at $10,000 a year for up to three years of tertiary study.
To date, it has provided six recipients with numerous opportunities, from financial support, to work experience and employment placements with SunRice, and professional and personal growth.
The scholarship honours the memory of long-term SunRice employee Jan Cathcart, and her 43 year contribution to the rice industry, by offering education and career opportunities to women who share Jan’s passion and commitment.
Successful applicants are chosen on a commitment to a career in agriculture or agribusiness, involvement in work experience and community service, leadership potential and academic achievements.
The scholarship is open to female rice growers, shareholders and employees of SunRice and their extended families.
