Scholarships

Scholarships for a number of our leadership programs are generously funded by employers, organisations and industry bodies, government, philanthropists and donors.  

Without the backing of these forward-thinking and generous supporters, places on programs such as the Australian Rural Leadership Program, would not exist. 

It is their belief in the impact of the leadership program on individual participants, the wider community and rural, regional and remote Australia which has sustained the ARLF for nearly three decades. 

Applying for scholarships 

Most scholarships offered by the ARLF do not require the applicant to lodge a scholarship application. Your application for the leadership program serves that purpose.  However, occasionally scholarships become available that do require a separate application process.   

Your application for these scholarships will not exclude you from being considered for other scholarships.
