Tallis Family Agricultural Scholarship

The Tallis Family Agricultural Scholarship was donated by Mary and Peter Tallis OAM, long-time supporters of agricultural education and of the Dookie campus. For more than 60 years, the Tallis Family have farmed “Boorinda”, a property neighbouring the Dookie campus. If you are commencing or currently studying agriculture and can demonstrate financial need, this scholarship could assist you with study and living expenses.
