Invest in WWOA’s NEW Forestry Leader Scholarship 

Consider your woodlands and how your relationship with your forester has helped you shape them over time. By investing in WWOA’s Forestry Leader Scholarship, your dollar goes towards encouraging and supporting the next generation of foresters.

With special thanks, a very dedicated WWOA member is willing to match our donations up to $20,000, through a special 1:1 Match Opportunity when donated by September 23, 2017!

The first scholarship will be awarded to a Junior or Senior student studying Forest Management at UW-Stevens Point in the spring of 2018. Help us establish a strong fund base for this scholarship to expand our reach and strengthen our partnership with UW-Stevens Point!
