Growth spurt in Forestry scholarships

The Faculty of Forestry has created new endowments in support of a $1,500 undergraduate scholarship and two new prizes totaling $500 for graduating students this spring thanks to a $33,350 donation from the Association of British Columbia Professional Foresters (ABCPF).

The undergraduate scholarship will be awarded to a student entering the second year of the Forest Resources Management Program.

A $300 prize will go to an undergraduate forestry student who has penned the best graduating thesis.

A $200 prize will be awarded for the best essay by a graduating student in the faculty. The award winners will be announced at the end of the spring term.

The ABCPF was established in 1947 to uphold the public interest in the practice of professional forestry by ensuring the competence, independence, integrity and accountability of professional foresters.

There are currently 2,990 registered professional foresters in the province.
