Date Issued: 18 January 2013


If you are planning to study trees, woodlands or forestry abroad there’s still time to pack in a travel bursary from the RFS. The deadline for applications for a bursary of up to £500 through the Donald Randle Trust is 6 March 2013.

The bursaries are open to people who are already working, or to students looking to enhance their studies, but excludes group expeditions or participation in tours or courses organised by other bodies or commercial enterprises. In addition, the RFS Yorkshire Division, in conjunction with the Yorkshire Agricultural Society, also offers an annual bursary worth up to £600 to allow a student aged 18 or over with strong local links to carry out a forestry-related project. More details are available on our Bursaries page.

Bursary winners are asked to contribute a feature or a technical paper on their research for the RFS magazine, the Quarterly Journal of Forestry.
