Stevenson Memorial Trust sponsors students
Gottstein Trust welcomed a new initiative with The Steve Stevenson Memorial
Trust Fund (SSMT) in late 2019. This great opportunity is for university
students. The SSMT provides a fully funded place for one university student to
participate in the annual Gottstein Trust course.
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 2022 course included three student places generously sponsored by the SSMT fund. The students were from the Australian National University, Southern Cross University in Lismore and University of the Sunshine Coast. The Gottstein Trust team liaises with each
university to make this opportunity known to their students. A short application process is conducted with the selection of each student awarded a
sponsored place in the Gottstein Course being carried out by the Steve
Stevenson Memorial Trust Fund.
Forestry Australia sponsors young professionals
Gottstein Trust was delighted to welcome this initiative of Forestry Australia that offered two scholarships for Forestry Australia members to participate in the Gottstein Understanding
Wood Science Course in September 2022 in Canberra/Albury. This was supported through the Future Foresters Initiative (FFI) which
expressly assists students and early-career professionals/ researchers.
generosity of Midway Limited enabled one recent ANU masters’ forestry
graduate to receive sponsorship of a fully funded place in the 2022 Gottstein Understanding
Wood Science Course.
Our team enjoyed 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.
