2019 Rural Chances Scholars

You are here:

Rural Chances scholarships were developed to support young rural and regional Victorians pursue their vocational aspirations.

The program aims to help fill skill shortages in rural and regional Victoria by enabling students to complete vocational training and return to their local community with their new qualification.

We would like to congratulate the inspiring 2019 Rural Chances Scholars:

Young people can apply for a $2,000 scholarship to assist with the purchase of equipment, fees and tools of the trade necessary for vocational study or one of $5,000 to assist the young people moving away from home or with travel expenses necessary to complete their qualification. The scholarship also includes mentoring, leadership and networking opportunities.

The 2019 Rural Chances Vocational Scholarships open on 15 July 2019.
