Three scholarship opportunities (3 x $40,000)

Open to three students (one student from each undergraduate course), who is enrolled or intending to enrol in Year 1 of the Bachelor Business (Agriculture), Bachelor of Business (Agribusiness) and the Advanced Diploma Equine Business Management Programs.

To be eligible, students must demonstrate:

  • Genuine need for financial support
  • Demonstrated passion in agriculture, agribusiness or equine management.
  • Highly driven and motivated.

The funds will be allocated on the basis of $20,000 in Year 1 of study and $20,000 in the final year of study.

If the equine recipient in their first year chooses to complete only one year of study (Advanced Diploma of Equine Business Management), a new scholarship recipient will be selected for one year only of his/her final year in one of either three programs at the discretion of the scholarship donors and the College. That student will receive $20,000 and become one of the recipients of the Channel Foundation Scholarship.
