NSW Farmers' Association Tertiary Scholarships 2024

Farmers across New South Wales produce more than $15 billion worth of food and fibre every year, representing around one quarter of Australia’s total agricultural output.  

Agriculture is a vibrant, global, and highly competitive industry that will need to attract and retain the best and brightest. NSW Farmers Association aims for excellence in the future workforce by awarding annual scholarships.

The Tertiary Scholarships demonstrate our commitment to our members and the industry by recognising the value of education to the future of agriculture. 

The scholarships were first awarded in 1993 to reward, promote and encourage excellence in tertiary studies from members’ families. 

Each year the Association awards five (5) scholarships of $4,000 each.

Applications for the 2024 NSW Farmers’ Tertiary Scholarships are now open. 

Applications will close on Sunday, 5 May 2024
