The National Wood Flooring Association announced its new Education & Research Foundation Wood Studies Scholarship, designed to promote the post-secondary study of forestry and related forestry sciences.
This non-renewable scholarship in the amount of $1,000 will be awarded to a current high school senior who will study forestry in an effort to advance and improve forestry practices for generations to come.
“We are pleased to offer this new scholarship opportunity, one that highlights the importance of forestry sciences to our future,” NWFA president and CEO Michael Martin said in a statement. “Trees are a natural resource providing the raw materials that support the livelihoods of those employed in the forestry and flooring industries, including so many members of the NWFA.”
