Time to apply for next year’s forest scholarships


Do you want to participate in, or arrange a forest workshop? Are you dreaming about a special study visit but never had the opportunity? SNS and NordGen now open up for applications to a scholarship for young students or professionals working with forest management.


The scholarship seeks to encourage education and knowledge exchange within forest genetics, seed access and rejuvenation of forests. The grant can be used for travel expenses but also to cover costs related to essays at bachelor- or masterlevel, equipment, laboratory and print expenses. The activity must be relevant in a Nordic context and contribute to Nordic benefit. A total sum of 100 000 NOK is to be distributed. Each applicant can be granted a maximum of 20 000 NOK.

Application for the scholarship is accepted from December 15th, 2017 until February 15th, 2018.
In April 2018 the scholarship holders are to be announced.

We emphasize the importance of gender balance and will take that into account when we make our decisions.
