July 21, 2020

Applications are now being sought from rural leaders interested in undertaking the Australian Rural Leadership Foundation's highly regarded Australian Rural Leadership Program (ARLP).

The ARLP is a 15-month leadership development program which takes place across Australia and overseas, immersing rural, regional and remote participants in a series of unique experiences to develop their leadership capabilities.

Over 30 $50,000 scholarships are available for people working in or wanting to contribute to the development of rural, regional and remote Australia - including two cotton industry scholarships, proudly supported by CRDC, Cotton Australia and Auscott Limited. 

The cotton industry has a long history of supporting the ARLP, with many alumni well known for their contributions to the industry: Dave Anthony, Adam Kay, Harvey Gaynor, Bernie George, Paul McVeigh, John Hamparsum, Bruce Finney, Philip Armytage, Michael Murray, Dr Sharon Downes, Barb Grey, Arthur Spellson and Mike Logan AM.

The most recent leaders supported to undertake the program with support from CRDC, Cotton Australia and Auscott Limited are: Ruth Redfern (Course 27); Chantal Corish (also supported by Prime Super) and Rod Gordon (Course 26); Fleur Anderson and John Durham (Course 25); and Richard Malone and Tim Chaffey (Course 24).
