Congratulations to the 2020 Forest Landowner Foundation Scholarship Recipients!
Ensuring the Bright Minds of Forestry’s Future
The education and mentorship of new foresters is an important concern for all forest landowners. As such the Forest Landowner Foundation awards scholarships to individuals pursuing a degree in a natural resource related field from nationally accredited forestry schools. By doing so we are doing our small part to ensure natural resources graduates entering the workforce have the skill set and knowledge to perpetuate the legacy of private forest ownership in America.
Watch the videos of this year’s scholarship recipients to hear why they chose to pursue a career in forestry.
