Women in rice

Applications close this Saturday 14 October for the Jan Cathcart Scholarship for women with connections to the rice industry and who are undertaking, or planning to undertake, tertiary studies are encouraged to apply.

The scholarship is valued at $10,000 a year for up to three years of tertiary study.
Since its launch in 2014, the scholarship has provided five recipients with numerous opportunities ranging from financial support to work experience and employment placements with SunRice.
The scholarship honours the memory of long-term SunRice employee Jan Cathcart and her 43-year contribution to the rice industry.
Successful applicants are chosen on: her commitment to a career in agriculture; her involvement in work experience and community service; leadership potential; and academic achievements.
Previous recipients have commented on the far-reaching influence the scholarship has had on their lives, noting the opportunity to grow their professional networks, develop skills through practical work experience, and having a financial head start upon graduating.
Applications close on Saturday 14 October 2017, with the winner to be announced in early 2018.
Please refer to the application form for full details. The form can be accessed at www.sunrice.com.au/JanCathcartScholarship.
