Riverine Plains is inviting applications for the 2022 John Hanrahan and Uncle Tobys Scholarships.
The Scholarships recognise and encourage agricultural excellence in the Riverine Plains region by supporting local students through their studies.
The John Hanrahan Scholarship was established by Riverine Plains in honour of the late John Hanrahan from Coreen, whose community spirit, passion for agriculture and thirst for knowledge was renowned.
