Nominate now for the Agrifutures Rural Women's Award

Nominations for the 2019 AgriFutures Rural Women's Award close at the end of October.

The  AgriFutures Rural  Women’s  Award  is  Australia’s  leading  award  acknowledging  and  supporting  the  essential  role  women  play  in  rural  businesses,  industries  and  communities. 

The  Award  provides  a  platform  to  inspire  and  support  Australian  women  to  use  and  develop  their skills  to  benefit  their  industries  and  communities.

If  you  want  to  create  impact,  innovate  and  make  a  difference  and/or  contribute  to  enhancing  the  prosperity  of  rural  and  regional  Australia,  then  we  want  to  hear  from  you.

 Each state and territory winner receives a $10,000 bursary for innovative ideas and projects, access to professional development opportunities and alumni networks.

The Award is open to all women involved in rural industries, rural and regional businesses and rural and regional communities.  The  selection  criteria  lends  itself  to  awarding  the  winners  for  significant  potential  to  create  positive  impact,  not  a  reward  for  previous  work  done. 

 The bursary can be used for formal training in leadership and business management; overseas study tours; establishing business plans or pilot programs; developing educational or promotional campaigns; networking at forums and conferences to grow your knowledge of industries and markets; developing training programs; testing information technology initiatives; developing or testing a new business concept or innovation; and publishing books.

 The bursary cannot be used for buying capital equipment (without the explicit approval from AgriFutures Australia) or further tertiary education such as a Diploma, Masters or Doctorate degree.
