The Gardiner Dairy Foundation is calling upon aspiring students from dairy communities to apply for 2018 Tertiary Scholarships.

Four scholarships, of $10,000 per annum for two years, will be provided to students starting study at university or TAFE in 2018, in a field that will support the Victorian dairy industry and its communities in the future.

Rural students often experience increased barriers to tertiary education and the Gardiner Dairy Foundation aims to assist these students, and in turn drive dairy communities forward.

Gardiner Dairy Foundation chairman, Dr Bruce Kefford, said investing in emerging rural leaders would allow the Gardiner Dairy Foundation to support the long-term future of the dairy industry.

“We are pleased to be able to support young people from dairying communities by providing these scholarships," he said.

“The Tertiary Scholarships program plays a vital role in helping talented individuals have the opportunity to access tertiary education and this investment will enable a positive impact on dairy communities through the skills they gain.”

Former recipient of the Tertiary Scholarships program, Matthew Roache from Woolsthorpe, Victoria is currently completing a Bachelor of Agriculture at Charles Sturt University.

“The Tertiary Scholarship that I have received has provided support and covered some of the costs associated with relocating from Victoria to Wagga Wagga," Mr Roache said.

“I would like to thank the Gardiner Dairy Foundation for this opportunity and encourage those commencing university or TAFE degrees in 2018 to apply for the program as it truly is a remarkable opportunity that will provide extensive benefits for years to come.”

Eligible scholars must meet the below requirements:

  • Pursuing a career through their chosen course that will either directly benefit the dairy

    industry and/or benefit dairy communities.

  • Starting their first year of full-time tertiary study in 2018 (university or TAFE).
  • Required to move away from home to take up their chosen course.
  • Must be an Australian citizen.
  • Applications for the Tertiary Scholarships program are now open until 5pm Sunday, October 29.

    Application forms and further information is available via the follow link www.gardinerfoundation.com.au/current-projects-community#TertScholars.

    Completed forms are to be submitted via scholarships@gardinerfoundation.com.au.
