Sustainable Agriculture Scholarship for Farmers

Sponsored by the Department for Environment and Water

In memory of Peter and Wendy Olsen

The Sustainable Agriculture Scholarship for Farmers is an $8000 grant to provide opportunities for young farmers to improve their personal and professional skills that will benefit; the rural industry, the individual in their own business or employment, and the sustainability of natural resources.

One farmer aged between 18 and 40 receives the scholarship each year, with the funds to be used for study tours, courses or further study or assist to directly fund the commencement of a specific project.
