The scholarship program builds on the commitments of the Agriculture Strategy to grow, modernise and promote the sector – helping to deliver the agriculture skills of the future and building on the Government’s goal to grow Victoria’s agriculture sector to $20 billion by 2030.
Since 2015, the Young Farmers Scholarship program has successfully supported 89 young farmers to develop their skills across a range of agriculture sectors.
