NSW Farm­ers branch’s in­au­gu­ral schol­ar­ship

Southern Riverina news - - NEWS -

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.
