Scholarships are a benefit for being a member of the New York State Urban Forestry Council (NYSUFC).  Any member can apply for a scholarship.  Their participation will help the councils goal to increase planning, management and education in Urban Forestry.  Members actively involved with the council may receive additional consideration. Scholarships are available to help members attend an event in which they would not be able to finance through their employer or organization.   The scholarship will cover registration fees, travel costs are not covered.

Scholarships opportunities will be announced by email to members and shared in newsletter, for events being promoted by the council. Awardees will be notified within 2 to 3 weeks following the application received.  The council may cover all or part of the registration fee.  Other events can be applied for on an individual basis but could take longer to award.
