Rural Bank Scholarships

Rural Bank supports the next generation of rural leaders by providing scholarships to first-time undergraduate students.

Rural Bank’s 2021 Scholarship Program will open 1st December. Stay tuned for further details.

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.
