Spotlight on the agricultural industry as a career option

Spotlight on the agricultural industry as a career option

THE agriculture sector can open up a world of opportunity and as a proud supporter of rural New Zealand, FMG has once again offered two promising school leavers the chance to make their mark through the FMG Agriculture Scholarship programme.

This year FMG offers two students $5000 towards their Halls of Residence or living costs for their first year of university and another $5000 towards their course fees for the remaining years of their undergraduate degree at Massey, Waikato or Lincoln University.

“School leavers are starting to decide what study they’re jumping into next year. We want to put the spotlight on the agricultural industry as a career option and support those enrolling in agricultural degrees,” says FMG’s chief client officer Andrea Brunner.

“The Agriculture sector is often over represented as your old school, Fred Dagg and muddy gumboots kind of profession. But, in reality, it’s fast becoming one of the most innovative and diverse industries in the country.”

Applications close on October 31. “Submit information about your personal aspirations, agricultural interests and an essay on an industry topic.”
