Welcome to the Women in Agriculture Practical Training Fund application process. The fund is provided by the Scottish Government for female residents of Scotland who are currently working in or towards a career in agriculture.
This fund aims to provide women in Rural Scotland with greater opportunities for training, and so help address the current gender imbalance within the agricultural industry. It is open to any woman or girl* resident in Scotland who is either already working in or studying agriculture, full-time or part-time, or who is keen to start. In your application you should explain how the training will support the development of your business or employment options. We particularly welcome applications from remote rural and island communities. Support may be available for travel and accommodation, depending upon the distance or logistics involved in you travelling to available training.
Firstly, we will check if you are eligible for the fund. If you are not, the application process will stop. If you think that you are eligible, please contact us on the link below, quoting the reference number that you will be given when you apply.
* Please note if you are under 16, this form will need to be completed by a parent or guardian
