Scottish Woodlands Student Excellence Award
The Scottish Woodlands Student Excellence Award was launched by The Scottish Forestry Trust in May 2011 to recognise excellence in the quality and relevance of the output from Trust funded PhD Studentships. The Award provides £400 per recipient as a result of funding provided by Scottish Woodlands Ltd. From 2021 the Award is expected to be presented approximately every years as batches of Scottish Forestry Trust funded PhD studentships are completed. The Award for 2021 (covering PhD Theses from 2018-2020) is due to be announced in September 2021.
