The Gottstein Trust awards
Scholarships from the Trust fund are for students who are studying in a field of
study relevant to a future career within the forestry and wood products sector.
Applicants are typically university undergraduates or postgraduate students who
are undertaking a bachelor’s degree, graduate diploma, master’s degree or PhD
program in wood science or forest science. Applications may also be received
from TAFE students.
The scholarship provides funds up to a
maximum of $5,000 per annum to each successful applicant for either one, two or
a maximum of three years.
The funds are made available to the
Scholarship holder for the purpose of meeting living, relocation, and
education-related expenses. Payments are granted subject to ongoing proof of
appropriate progression of study and achievements.
The Trustees are responsible for the
governance of the Trust Fund and thus they determine the awarding of every
Scholarship. The guiding principle is that the scholar has aptitudes and
aspirations that are judged as being consistent with the Trust’s guiding principle
to promote the development of the Australian wood products and forestry
