2024 AgriFutures Rural Women’s Award applications now open

Applications are now open for the 2024 AgriFutures Rural Women’s Award until 25 October 2023.

The award is designed to empower and celebrate inclusive and courageous leadership by women involved in Australia’s rural and emerging industries, businesses and communities.

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

Westpac has been a platinum sponsor of the Rural Women’s Awards for over 15 years. The Queensland winner of the Rural Women’s Award will receive a $15,000 grant to further their work and represent Queensland at the national awards where they have the chance to win an additional $20,000 grant.

Queensland’s new state sponsor, the Queensland Country Women’s Association, will provide a $2,000 grant to Queensland’s finalists. Finalists also gain access to professional development opportunities and alumni networks.

In addition to the Rural Women’s Awards, AgriFutures Australia offer the Rural Women’s Acceleration Grant as a leadership and development opportunity for rural women who feel they are not quite ready to apply for the award. The Rural Women’s Acceleration Grant provides a bursary of up to $7,000 for professional development, driving innovation in rural industries, businesses and communities.

Applications for the 2024 AgriFutures Rural Women’s Award will close on Wednesday, 25 October 2023.
