High School Scholarship

We are pleased to present a brand-new scholarship offering for high school students. In November 2016, the Chapter Board of Directors voted to establish a $2,000 scholarship for high school seniors who will be pursuing a career in arboriculture, urban forestry, and related fields. Each year, the Chapter will offer one high school scholarship. Graduating seniors are invited to apply!

Students can apply online or by mail, using our paper application.   

Undergraduate and Graduate Scholarships

In November 2016, the Chapter Board of Directors voted to increase the scholarship amount to $2,000. The Chapter will be awarding two $2,000 scholarships for current undergraduate and graduate students.

Students can apply online or by mail, using our paper application.

Arbor Day Grant

The Arbor Day Grant application has been revised and applicants can now apply online or by mail using the paper application. The grant awards up to $1,000 to a town, organization or community that demonstrates need to promote and support their Arbor Day celebration. Apply online or download a paper application and apply by mail.
