Young Farmers Scholarship
Up skill and invest
The Upskill and Invest - Young Farmers Scholarship is an opportunity to invest in you and your career. Up to $10,000 is available per scholarship: $5,000 towards study backed by further funds of up to $5,000 to invest on-farm or in professional development activities, to help put new skills into practice.
Each year, 10-15 scholarships will be awarded to young farmers aged 35 or under.
The scholarship program is designed to be flexible, to fit with the demands and ambitions of young farmers and farm workers.
Scholarships were granted to 12 recipients in December 2016 and the Minister for Agriculture presented their awards during a ceremony in January 2017. The next Young Farmer Scholarship round will open in mid-2017.
Further information on the Upskill and Invest - Young Farmers Scholarship, including how to apply, can be found on the Business Victoria website.
