The scholarship seeks to encourage education and knowledge exchange within forest genetics, seed access and rejuvenation of forests. The grant can be used for travel expenses but also to cover costs related to essays at bachelor- or masterlevel, equipment, laboratory and print expenses. The activity must be relevant in a Nordic context and contribute to Nordic benefit. A total sum of 100 000 NOK is to be distributed. Each applicant can be granted a maximum of 20 000 NOK.

Application for the scholarship is accepted from December 15th until February 15th.
In April 2018 the scholarship holders are to be announced.

The forest scholarships are distributed by NordGen (Nordic Genetic Resource Centre) and SNS (Nordic Forest Research).
