2019 Rural Chances Scholars
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.

The scholarship also includes mentoring, leadership and networking opportunities.
