The Ricegrowers’ Association of Australia (RGA) has announced the recipients of their 2017 tertiary scholarship awards.

The Greg Graham Memorial Scholarship, valued at $10,000, has been awarded to Allister Clarke of Tocumwal to assist him to continue his studies at The University of Sydney where he is studying a Bachelor of Science in Agriculture.

RGA President, Jeremy Morton, said that Mr Clarke was a worthy winner. “Allister won the award on the basis of the knowledge and practical skill he possesses making him an asset to the rice industry. I have no doubt he will make a significant contribution to the industry and our community.”

Mr Morton said the scholarship honours the memory of Greg Graham, a previous President of the RGA, who died suddenly in 1983.
