NSW Farmers Tertiary Scholarships 2024 

Primary Industries across NSW contributed more than $21 billion in Gross Value of Production (GVP) in 2022-23, the second highest on record, representing about 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 aims for excellence in the future workforce by awarding annual scholarships. 
The NSW Farmers Tertiary Scholarships demonstrate our commitment to 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 member families.  
Each year NSW Farmers awards five scholarships of $4000 each.
