As spring term nears many opportunties for recognition and funding arise. Among those opportunities are:
Hoener Participation Awards- this fund supports domestic travel for individual students and student clubs. Their intent is to broaden students’ educational experience by enabling them to conduct independent study related to forest industry, observe forest industry operations, or attend industry-related
conferences within the U.S. They should be used to highlight the CoF and Hoener Memorial Fund regionally and nationally.
The Bruce Starker Memorial Fund supports student and/or faculty travel to professional forestry meetings or to visit advanced forest practices in operational settings, experimental plots, growth studies, or other relevant sites with primary emphasis on private forestry.
The Ted Maul Professional Development Fund supports travel to professional meetings for juniors and seniors in the CoF.
The Louis & Alice Blaser Fund supports travel to professional meetings for juniors and seniors in the CoF.
Proposals for the above mentioned funds should be completed using the form available in the Student Services Office, Peavy Hall 140 and should be submitted by April 13, 2012, at 5pm.
Bowerman Leadership Award is presented annually to a senior in the College of Forestry who best exemplifies outstanding leadership and/or service to the College of Forestry, the OSU community, or to the state/nation/world. Nominations for this award may be made by students, faculty, or staff members of the College of Forestry; self-nominations are also permitted. Nomination letters may be signed by multiple individuals, but a second endorsement is still required. Nominees must be seniors enrolled in one of the undergraduate programs of the CoF. Nomination forms and full details are available in the Student Services Office, Peavy Hall 140. Nominations are due by 5pm on April 20, 2012.
