Previously, the Horizon Scholarship program was open to students in their first two years of tertiary studies, but that has changed for 2024 and is now available to students who are in their final years of study to better connect them with industry networks, providing momentum when entering the workforce.
The scholarship provides a $5,000 annual bursary for the final two years of the recipient’s degree.
Scholarship recipients may also be provided with non-monetary benefits, including:
- Professional development
- Industry work placements
- Exclusive networking events, and participation in industry gatherings.
Suitable undergraduate degrees include, but are not limited to:
- Agricultural Science
- Rural Science
- Livestock/Animal Science
- Veterinary Science
- Plant Science
- Agricultural Economics
- Resource Management
- Food Security
- Science, Technology, Engineering or Maths (STEM) with major studies and subject selections relevant to, and aligned with, agriculture.
To be eligible for the Horizon Scholarship, students must be an Australian citizen or permanent resident enrolled full-time in their last two years of an agriculture-related undergraduate degree at an Australian university.
Scholarship recipients will be selected on the basis of their commitment to a career in agriculture, as well as their leadership potential and tertiary academic record to date.
