Rural Bank supports the next generation of rural leaders by providing scholarships to first-time undergraduate students.
Rural Bank has an ongoing focus on supporting youth in agriculture by providing financial support in the form of scholarships to first-time undergraduate students. Scholarship recipients have chosen subject areas which will enable them to contribute to the Australian agricultural industry and/or rural and regional communities.
Scholarships provide each successful student with funding to the value of $5,000 to assist with his or her tertiary studies. The funding aims to support study-related expenses covering such things as accommodation costs, course costs, study materials and equipment, textbooks or tutoring.
