  • Closes on Monday, 29 November -0001 23:58

The Forestry Partnership (TFP), in conjunction with RSFS, is offering an award of a travel bursary to support Early Career foresters broaden their experience through targeted overseas visits. The theme of the visit should be ‘Bringing practical solutions for forestry from overseas’.

Early career foresters are defined as those who have less than five years’ experience in the sector. The award is open to RSFS members, including those who are members through their employer. The proposal can support participation in an organised event, tour or conference. Alternatively, the application can set out a tailored itinerary. The proposal should explain how the experience will be used by the applicant subsequently and also how they will communicate what they have learned more widely.

There will be a maximum of two awards each year, judged on how well the application will bring best practice from other countries, relevant to practical forestry in the UK. The maximum funding for any award is £5,000, and applications should demonstrate value for money, including matched funding from other awards.

For study visits to take place during calendar year 2024, applications will be open until 1st December, with a view to confirming awards by the end of December.
