Scholarships for Incoming Students
Incoming students may qualify for the Department of Forestry’s new “Forests Forever Scholars Program.” The Forests Forever Scholars Program provides extraordinary opportunities for learning, leadership development, and multi-year scholarships for outstanding Forestry majors (including incoming freshman and transfer students). Scholarship amounts range from $2,000 - $10,000 per year, depending on academic merit and financial need.
Scholarships are renewable to a total term of four years, contingent on satisfactory academic performance (a GPA greater than 3.2 while attending MSU) and active participation in program activities.
Forests Forever Scholars participate in activities that expose them to a variety of forestry topics and that provide opportunities for leadership development. We expect Scholars to be leaders in contributing to the intellectual and social community of the Department of Forestry and encourage Scholars to be involved in registered student organizations and broader community service.
Scholars also have the opportunity to participate in roundtable discussions with Department visitors and speakers. With respect to leadership, Scholars serve as ambassadors for the Forestry Department, including attendance at alumni functions and presentations to prospective Forestry students.
