Are you working or studying within forestry? Do you have an idea for a workshop, or do you need funding for participating in a seminar? Perhaps you would like to visit a colleague to learn more about your field of work? If you do, don’t miss out on the opportunity to receive a scholarship from us! The call for the NordGen/SNS Forest scholarships is now open.

Bringing people in the Nordic countries together for knowledge exchange and networking is beneficial for everyone. That’s why NordGen Forest is cooperating with Nordic Forest Research, SNS, to facilitate Nordic cooperation in the field of forestry. Among other things, we grant annual scholarships to people working or studying within forestry.

The scholarships should contribute to common Nordic benefit by supporting education, continuing education and knowledge exchange for persons working or studying within forest seed or plant production, regeneration methods and tree breeding in the Nordic countries.

Each applicant can receive up to 20 000 NOK. Primarily, the grant should be used to cover traveling costs in connection with education or knowledge exchange within the fields mentioned above.

The call for the scholarship is open until the 15th of February.

Register your application to the NordGen/SNS forest scholarship through this link.

In April, the chosen scholars will be published. We emphasize the importance of gender balance and we will take that into account when we make our decisions.

We look forward to receiving your application!
