Scholarship open

Ag. The Greenham Agritas Scholarship is now open for applications.

Offered for the 15th consecutive year, the scholarship is open to applicants aged 17 to 45 who are immediate family, sharefarmers or employees of farmers who have sold cattle to the Smithton meat processing plant any time during 2017. The number of cattle sold is not important.

The winner receives $12,000 to help him or her undertake formal study towards a career in the beef or dairy industries.

The scholarship is presented in partnership with the Agritas Trade College in Smithton, of which Greenham Tasmania is a foundation partner.

The winner will be expected to undertake the chosen course of study this year and must complete it. The scholarship may also be used to finish a course already begun or for study which will take more than one year to complete.

Applications close on Tuesday January 30. Forms and information sheets are available by emailing or visiting
