Stevenson Memorial Trust sponsors students
Gottstein Trust commenced 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 each 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 2023 Understanding Forest Science course included one student place generously sponsored by the SSMT, for a student studying at Curtin University, Western Australia.
The 2022 course included three student places sponsored by SSMT. The students came from the Australian National University, Southern Cross University in northern NSW and Sunshine Coast University.
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.
