Bursaries & Study Grants

Future Farmers Network (FFN) wants to ensure that our members have to access to education and training opportunities regardless of where they are based. We understand that sometimes this can come at a significant financial cost and therefore FFN assists members by offering them Travel & Training bursaries valued at $500. With access to bursaries our members have travelled nationally and internationally to undertake course and attend conferences and events that benefit them personally and professionally.

In addition to Travel & Training bursaries Future Farmers Network (FFN), with the generous support of its valued partners, also provides bi-monthly Study grants to FFN members who are studying an agriculture-related course. Study grants are valued at $1000.00 and are awarded to FFN members to assist with funding study related expenses (for example textbooks, equipment or resources) and/or additional education/training opportunities.
