Course Sponsors

The Steve Stevenson Memorial Trust sponsors students

The Gottstein Trust welcomed a new initiative with The Steve Stevenson Memorial Trust Fund (SSMT) in late 2020. This great opportunity is for university students. The SSMT provides a fully fund place for one university student to participate in the annual Gottstein Trust course.

The opportunity to have this sponsored student place is rotated to a different university each year. Over time this means that students from all over Australia will have opportunities to apply.

The 2020 student place was for the Australian National University in Canberra.

For the 2021 course the SSMT sponsored places were generously expanded to two students. One will be from the University of Southern Cross in Lismore, the other from the University of the Sunshine Coast.  The Gottstein Trust liaises with each university to make this opportunity known to their students. The selection of the award winner rests with the Steve Stevenson Memorial Trust Fund.

Institute of Foresters of Australia/Australian Forest Growers sponsors young professionals and students

The Gottstein Trust is delighted to welcome this initiative of the IFA/AFG that offers two scholarships for IFA/AFG members to participate in the Gottstein Understanding Wood Science Course in November 2021 in Canberra/Albury.  This is supported through the Institute’s Future Foresters Initiative (FFI) which expressly assists students and early-career professionals/ researchers.

Midway sponsored student

The generosity of Midway Limited has enabled one recent ANU masters’ forestry graduate to receive sponsorship of a fully funded place in the 2021 Gottstein Understanding Wood Science Course.

Our team looks forward to welcoming all these young people and is excited to collaborate with the sponsoring organisations to encourage bright, up-and-coming people associated with our ultimate renewable timber industry.
