The Ricegrowers’ Association of Australia (RGA) reminds all rice growers that applications for the 2018 tertiary scholarships close soon.

In November 2017, the RGA announced new eligibility criteria for its tertiary scholarships making it more accessible for the children and grandchildren of rice growers.

The new eligibility criteria for the Greg Graham Memorial Scholarship for 2018 and beyond will be:

 Applicants must be the child or grandchild of a current financial member of RGA; and/or the child or grandchild of a rice grower – a rice grower is defined as someone who has delivered a minimum of 200 tonne of rice over the past 2 years.
 Applicants must be in their second or successive year of studying an agricultural focused and/or industry related course at an Australian tertiary institution; and
 Applicants need to demonstrate a commitment to the rice industry.
