Dean of the Faculty of Natural Sciences
We’re excited to be welcoming students and academic, agency and industry colleagues from a wide range of SFT co-funded projects across the UK to share experience and findings and to celebrate together.
Scottish Forestry Trust’s bursary scheme is a partnership with the Forestry Commission and Natural Resources Wales. It was set up twelve years ago to benefit PhD and Masters research carried out in the UK for the benefit of UK forestry.
Amanda Bryan, Director of Scottish Forestry Trust, said: “We are delighted to be hosting our inaugural Bursary Student Seminar in partnership with the University of Stirling and with support from Scottish Forestry.
“Professor Alistair Jump, at the University of Stirling, and his team have produced excellent forestry researchers, some of which we have had the privilege of funding and it will be great to hear directly from them as well as other bursary students we have supported across the UK.
“The SFT’s Bursary scheme which is supported by Scottish Forestry, Natural Resources Wales and the Forestry Commission has now funded 26 PhD students over a 12-year period and has not just resulted in current research to meet the needs of the forestry sector but also helped to develop the forestry researchers of the future.”
