Investing in the next generation of bright young minds, the Royal Agricultural Society Foundation (RASF) has this week announced the recipients of its 2022 RAS Foundation Rural Scholarships.
Designed to financially support rural and regional students, studying at university, college or TAFE, the scholarships are aimed at students who are passionate about applying their knowledge and skills within regional communities.
Sixty-nine students have been selected for this year’s Scholarship programs, with local Forbes woman Jacqueline Hodges among the recipients.
Jacqueline is studying a Masters of Clinical Psychology through Charles Sturt University. “I am passionate about helping young people, especially Aboriginal youth. My goal is to help youth achieve good mental health and develop skills to support their mental health throughout their life,” said Jacqueline.
RASF Manager, Cecilia Logan, said the Foundation is proud to support recipients in pursuing their dream careers.
“This year’s recipients have demonstrated a strong desire to give back to country NSW, and we are delighted to play a role in helping them achieve their goals,” Cecilia said.
Applications for the 2023 RASF Rural Scholarship program open 1st July. For further information, please visit www.rasf.org.au.
