Gottstein Trust Capacity Building Grants

06 April 2022

The 2022 round of the Gottstein Trust flagship grants program opened this week and applications are encouraged.

“Many companies in the industry are loyal regular donors into the Gottstein Trust Fund. This is the latest opportunity for their staff, as well as anyone across the supply chain, to apply for a capacity building grant from the Trust,’ said chair Suzette Weeding.

The grants are awarded to individuals and are open to all industry personnel and to students in a relevant field of study who aspire to a career in the forest products sector.

There are three types of grants. The categories are the Skill Development Support grant which has no set pre-requisites and is open to anyone who wants to build their skills and is working at any level; the Scholarship which is for TAFE and University students and the prestigious Gottstein Fellowship which generally supports early to mid-career individuals to undertake a special project that can be demonstrated to be of benefit to the industry.

“The Trust has a great track record of awarding grants that open up new opportunities for people to gain knowledge and use it for the good of the industry,” said Ms Weeding.

Former award recipients invariably praise the support they received from Gottstein award grant. “Certainly some people tell us that the impacts from the Gottstein Trust funding were life and career changing.”

Applications opened on Monday 4th April and will close on Friday 3rd June 2022. First hand testimonials are available at testimonials .
