Tertiary Scholarship Program

About the scholarships

NSW Farmers Association awards a number of scholarships each year under the Association's Tertiary Scholarship Program.

The Tertiary Scholarship Program was established in 1993 to provide an enhanced benefit for Association Members and to reward, promote and encourage excellence in tertiary studies from Members families.

The scholarships are open to students who are Members or come from a family that are Members (see Eligibility Criteria for full requirements), undertaking full time courses in their second or subsequent year of tertiary study (exceptions for the vocational scholarship). They are available to students studying any course at any recognised tertiary institution, and are not limited to studying in NSW.

In 2015 the Association will offer five (5) scholarships to the value of $4000 each.

The five scholarships will be allocated as follows:

  1. Association Agriculture Scholarship: A full-time student in their second or subsequent year, undertaking a course in agriculture of more than one year at a recognised tertiary institution.
  2. Association Open Category Scholarship: A full-time student in their second or subsequent year, undertaking any course of more than one year at a recognised tertiary institution.
  3. Association Open Category Scholarship: A full-time student in their second or subsequent year, undertaking any course of more than one year at a recognised tertiary institution.
  4. Association Open Category Scholarship: A full-time student in their second or subsequent year, undertaking any course of more than one year at a recognised tertiary institution.
