NZIF Foundation seeks applications for $34,700 worth of scholarships and grants for 2021
28 March 2021
Applications are invited for the awards and scholarships, and prizes being offered this year by the NZIF Foundation (a registered charity established by the NZ Institute of Forestry in 2011). The awards, which total $34,700, include scholarships for polytech and university students, research grants, an award relating to the Otago-Southland region, plus prizes for student posters displayed at the NZIF conference being held in Masterton on 27-29th June 2021.
While the awards are all associated with forestry, this is broadly defined to include all those activities involved in the management and use of forests and their products. All forests in New Zealand, whatever their purpose, are encompassed in the definition as are all the products and environmental services that arise from forests.
Applications must be received by the Foundation administrator no later than 5pm on Monday, 31 May 2021. Membership of NZIF is NOT a requirement for application.
