Applications have now closed for the inaugural (2021) UNCLE TOBYS Scholarship, which is being administered by Riverine Plains Inc through the Riverine Plains Scholarship Fund.
The Scholarship recognises and encourages agricultural excellence in the Riverine Plains region by supporting a local second year student in their studies.
The Scholarship provides:
- A bursary of $5,000 for a student commencing their second year of study in 2021
- Access to work placement opportunities with Nestlé, the home of UNCLE TOBYS
- Opportunities to network and gain knowledge, with free access to all Riverine Plains Inc events.

The UNCLE TOBYS Scholarship was open to current first year agriculture or agribusiness degree or diploma students, entering their second year of studies in 2021. Students must be studying full time and be an Australian permanent resident or citizen.
The Scholarship was established to support future leaders of the agricultural industry, especially those in the local region. Students aged 18-30 from the Riverine Plains region of north eastern Victoria and the southern Riverina region of NSW were eligible to apply.
