The scholarship also includes a £2,000 bursary to enable scholars to attend a compulsory 14-day study tour which will be held overseas in July/August.

This postgraduate course is primarily intended for students who already have an interest in forestry and who wish to learn more about the environmental and societal benefits that forests can provide. Suitable applicants include individuals working in forestry/forest-related industries/ natural resource management, particularly in the fields of planning, regulation, policy, monitoring and environmental protection. The course is also suited to individuals working in forestry education who wish to further their knowledge and expertise in order to improve their teaching.

The scholarships are currently only available for entrants in September 2012.
