The RAS Foundation provides grants and scholarships to help rural Australians realise their potential through education, make a difference in their community and achieve their ambitions.

Rural Scholarships are available to support individuals in NSW who demonstrate a passion for rural and commitment for any career that will ensure the future success of rural and regional NSW. Scholarships of $5 000 for full-time study or $2500 for part-time study are available.

There is no limit on the types of courses that qualify or the age of the applicant. You could be studying anything from physiotherapy to engineering to teaching to agricultural science, horticulture and commerce – and almost everything in between. You could be studying at University, TAFE or VET courses, on campus or by distance learning. However applicants all have one thing in common – a desire to play an active part in the future of rural NSW.

Applicants for a Rural Scholarship must:

  • Be enrolled in or applying for study in any accredited tertiary course at an approved Australian education provider
  • Demonstrate an active interest in rural affairs and a desire to contribute to the future of rural NSW
  • Demonstrate how a scholarship would assist them in achieving their education or training goal
  • Be an Australian citizen or permanent resident

Applications open from July to September annually.
