The FBCWA has supported education through scholarships since 2001. Initially there was only one scholarship for $500. Since 2014 two scholarships have been awarded, one for $2000 and one for $1000. Students related to a woodlot licensee and/or private forest land owner or students who have no family connection and are sponsored by a woodlot licensee, and are attending post-secondary education, are eligible for these awards. Preference is given to a student entering a forestry-related program and awards are based on the evaluation of an essay submitted by applicants. The scholarship is funded by monies raised each year at the Federation’s Annual General Meeting via a silent auction of items donated by woodlot associations, licensees, private forest landowners and other forestry organizations.
The 2023 Scholarship application will be available summer 2023.
The Minister of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations awards are for Innovation and Excellence in Woodlot Management. Annually one woodlot licensee from the Coast, Southern Interior and Northern Interior Regions will be recognized and awarded $2500.00. Of those three, the top performer will be selected and awarded an additional $1000 – $2500. Licensees are invited to apply for the Minister’s Awards and a woodlot licensee may also be nominated by a woodlot association, another licensee, an individual, Ministry of FLNRO or the Federation. The award is subject to funding availability.
The application intake for the next award has not been announced at this time.
Funding through the WPDC is available for projects not included in the joint work plan with the Federation of BC Woodlot Associations (FBCWA). Eligible proponents must be one of the following: Woodlot Licensee, Woodlot Association, WPDC Board of Directors or FBCWA Board of Directors.
