NSW Farmers branch’s inaugural scholarship
The longstanding Deniliquin NSW Farmers Association branch is offering a scholarship to agriculture students for the first time.
The agriculture scholarship gives students from the Deniliquin branch region the opportunity to be granted $1000.
Deniliquin branch chair Amanda Barlow said they were glad to offer the scholarship.
‘‘It will give a student some funds to afford travel, books, accommodation, living expenses and more,’’ Mrs Barlow said.
‘‘It will go to a student either in university or going into university who is studying agriculture or a related degree.
‘‘Our aim is to support the study of agriculture by encouraging a local person to study it.’’
Mrs Barlow said the single scholarship is funded by the local branch but recipients do not necessarily need to be a part of the association.
‘‘Students must reside in the Deniliquin branch area to be eligible for the scholarship,’’ she said.
‘‘If you are unsure, contact me for any queries.’’

Applications for the grant close on February 15.
