Meet our 2021 scholarship recipients

2020/2021 has seen students facing a range of challenges from the COVID-19 pandemic. At Rural Bank we are providing some certainty to the next generation of agri leaders. We've awarded $75,000 through the Bank’s annual Scholarship Program to 15 regional and rural students.

To aid the transition to tertiary study, and to help students thrive in their chosen field, we have awarded each of the first-time students $5,000. Students will be studying an agribusiness or agricultural related qualification. Funds will assist with the commencement of their studies, including course costs, study materials, and equipment.
