Applications for the AgriFutures™ Horizon Scholarship are now open. Students studying an agriculture-related degree such as animal science who are in their last two years of study, are eligible to apply. 

The AgriFutures™ Horizon Scholarship, in partnership with industry sponsors, provides a $5,000 bursary and professional development opportunities for eligible university students.

The AgriFutures™ Horizon Scholarship also offers students annual industry work placements, access to industry leaders, professional development assistance and opportunities to network and gain knowledge at a range of industry events.

In 2019 there are some small but important changes to the program:

  • The scholarship will now be awarded for the last two years of the successful student’s degree; this change is aimed to increase networking opportunities and pathways into careers in agriculture.
  • Eligible agriculture related degrees now include science, technology, engineering or maths (STEM) degrees with major studies and subject selections relevant and aligned to agriculture.
  • Students studying traditional agriculture degrees such as rural science, animal science and agribusiness are eligible.
  • Students studying in faculties that support the prosperity of rural industries, such as logistics, communications and IT, who are passionate about a career in an agriculture, are also eligible.

The online application form and terms and conditions can be found here.

Applications close at 5pm AEDT Friday, 1 March 2019.
