Youth in Agriculture

SEPWA understands the importance of providing development and networking opportunities for young farmers and industry representatives, to ensure the industry remains strong into the future.


Strengthening the farming future

SEPWA supports the dynamic and very active ‘Youth in Ag’ sub-committee and also provides scholarships each year for undergraduate agriculture students.

Scholarships through SEPWA

Emerging young agricultural leaders from the Esperance Port Zone are encouraged to apply for two annual scholarships offered by SEPWA, Farm and General, and Viridis Ag. The scholarships are offered to support capacity building in the agricultural industry and to raise awareness of depression in rural Australia. They are available to a commencing or current undergraduate student studying in Agricultural Science. Applications are due at the start of each year. More information can be downloaded here.

Youth in Ag

Youth in Ag was formed to give younger members of the agricultural industry a chance to connect and further develop their skills and knowledge within the industry. The group gets together several times a year on tours and through other networking opportunities and meet online through their Facebook page.
