AgriFutures™ Rural Women's Award logo

The AgriFutures™ Rural Women's Award is Australia's leading award that acknowledges and supports the essential role women play in rural industries, businesses and communities.

The award provides a platform to inspire and support Australian women to use and develop their skills to benefit rural industries and communities.

The 2022 Victorian Rural Women’s Award finalists and winner were announced in March 2022 with Kimberley Furness representing Victoria at the National Award. She was crowned the national runner up at a gala event in Canberra in September 2022.

Applications for the 2023 Rural Women’s Award and Acceleration Grant are open until Wednesday 19 October 2022.

A series of information sessions will be held online in August, September and October. These sessions are intended to provide clarity around the differences between the two programs and the respective eligibility criteria, as well as answer any questions you may have in relation to the Rural Women’s Award or Acceleration Grant. All potential applicants are encouraged to register and attend before submitting an application.
