Investing in Ag’s future – ARLP scholarship opportunity

Future Farmers Network

The Future Farmers Network is a national network specifically for young people involved in all aspects of the rural industries and is your key to staying plugged into the latest news, events and opportunities available within the sector.

You don’t need to be a farmer, own land or even live in the country to be a member; if you share the vision of the Network then you are eligible and welcome. You can choose how much you get out of the network – as much or as little as you wish.

The age group for membership of FFN is people from 16 to 35 years, although individuals and organisations outside that age group are also encouraged to join. Membership is diverse, with a range of backgrounds represented.

ARLP Scholarship opportunity

Fairfax Agricultural Media (formerly Rural Press) are offering the opportunity for one FFN member to take up a scholarship on the Australian Rural Leadership Program (ARLP) – an opportunity valued at over $55,000.

The ARLP is run by the Australian Rural Leadership Foundation. This iconic program is designed to develop informed, capable and ethical leaders who can work collaboratively to advance the interests of their industries, communities and rural Australia in general.

The 17-month ARLP program improves the capacity of leaders to develop their skills and understanding so that they can contribute more effectively within their community, sector or industry, in the political arena or in program development and implementation.

If you have a commitment to rural Australia and want to invest in the FUTURE of Agriculture, FFN encourages you to put in an expression of interest in this opportunity.

If interested you can contact Annabelle Woods, FFN Executive Officer via admin@futurefarmers.com.au

Expressions of Interest close on Friday the 31st of May 2013
