Final chance for cotton-supported Horizon scholarship

CRDC

Applications for the 2022 AgriFutures Horizon Scholarship Program, proudly supported by CRDC, close this Friday 14 January.

Students who are entering their final two years of an undergraduate degree, and are passionate about the future of Australian rural industries, are reminded to apply.

The Horizon Scholarship is a collaboration between many of the Research and Development Corporations (RDC’s), along with Cooperative Research Centre for Developing Northern Australia and FMC Australasia to provide eligible university students with a $10,000 bursary over two years and plenty of opportunities to develop their leadership skills and expand their networks.

As part of the Program, students also attend an annual four-day professional development workshop and complete two weeks of industry work placements per year.

The Horizon Scholarship Program is open to students studying agriculture-related or STEM degrees with major studies and/or subject selections that align to agriculture.

To be eligible to apply students must:

  • Be an Australian citizen or permanent resident
  • Be studying an undergraduate degree at an Australian university
  • Be entering the final two years of their degree in 2022.

Scholarship recipients will be selected on the basis of their commitment to a career in agriculture, as well as their leadership potential and tertiary academic record to date.

Applications close Friday, 14 January 2022 at midnight AEDT. Shortlisted applicants must be available for a telephone interview in February 2022, and scholarship winners will be announced in April 2022.
