PURPOSE Since 1990 the NEC-ISA has awarded scholarships to students pursuing an education in field of study dedicated to plant material-oriented fields. The purpose of the awards is threefold: to help promote interest in shade and ornamental trees, to recognize scholarly endeavors, and to assist in financial aid.
The New England Chapter grants two scholarship awards of $1,500.00. Each recipient will receive $1,500 toward their educational expenses. We encourage recipients of our scholarship to be involved within the profession of arboriculture. The NEC-ISA also provides recipients with a full conference registration, one night lodging, and two complimentary banquet tickets for an accompanying guest.
The recipients of the scholarship will receive a free 1-year membership to the New England Chapter. They will receive an electronic version of our quarterly newsletter.
The applicant must be: Either a full-time student enrolled at an accredited four-year college, two-year college, or university in Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, or Vermont.
Or a resident of Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, or Vermont who is enrolled as a full-time student at an accredited four-year college, two-year college, or university elsewhere.
The applicant's major field of study shall be a plant material-oriented program, such as Arboriculture, Botany, Entomology, Horticulture, Plant Pathology, Urban Forestry, or a related field.
The applicant must have completed at least one college semester of a program leading to a degree or career in one of the above majors or in a related field.
The applicant shall type or print the information requested on the scholarship form and submit three copies of the scholarship form and essay, and three official transcripts, to the New England Chapter, International Society of Arboriculture.
In addition, the applicant shall supply one academic recommendation, to be sent by the academic reference directly to the New England Chapter, International Society of Arboriculture.
