The Royal Agricultural Society of NSW (RAS) Foundation hosted its annual morning tea at the Sydney Royal Easter Show to celebrate and recognise the 51 Rural Scholarship recipients for 2014. Now in its fourth year, the RAS Foundation Rural Scholarship program has been able to continue to gradually grow due to the generosity of individuals, corporate organisations and foundations.
The RAS Foundation is a philanthropic foundation which seeks to encourage educational opportunity and foster vibrant and sustainable rural and regional communities by supporting quality youth and community programs. The RAS Foundation is the charitable arm of the RAS of NSW. More than 100 guests attended the morning tea, including Glenn Dudley (RAS President), Michael Millner (RAS Foundation Chairman), RAS Councillors and staff, as well as many of the donors, sponsors and supporters that make the Rural Scholarship program possible. Jocellin Jansson, RAS Foundation Executive Officer, said the event was a wonderful way for the current crop of Rural Scholars to network with program alumni and supporters.
