The Agricultural Bureau of South Australia is pleased to advise that the following awards and scholarships are open for nomination.
The Sustainable Agriculture Scholarship for Young Farmers sponsored by the Department of Environment, Water and Natural Resources (DEWNR) provides a $8000 grant for a farmer aged between 18 and 35 to pursue further study, take a study tour or run a special project.
In memory of Peter and Wendy Olsen, the Scholarship aims to provide opportunities for young farmers to improve their personal and professional skills.
The Rural Youth Bursary sponsored by Primary Industries & Regions SA (PIRSA) is a $5000 grant for rural young people aged 18-30 years working in a rural community in South Australia, to undertake further study or develop a special project, which will ultimately benefit the rural community.
The Rural Youth Bursary is not restricted to primary production and applicants can be employed in any rural capacity.
Nominations for both Awards close on Monday 17th September 2018, with winners to be presented at the Agricultural Bureau of SA’s annual Spirit of Excellence Awards dinner on Thursday 18 October 2018 in Adelaide.
