Arboriculture/Urban Forest Memorial Scholarship

In August of 2006, the Professional Arborist Association of Mississippi and the Mississippi Urban Forest Council established the Arboriculture/Urban Forest Memorial Scholarship at Mississippi State University.  

The Mississippi State University Foundation uses the gift from the Professional Arborist Association of Mississippi and Mississippi Urban Forest Council to establish an annual scholarship for deserving students enrolled at Mississippi State University in the College of Forest Resources. The recipient of this scholarship must be enrolled as a Forestry major with a concentration in urban forestry, have an interest in arboriculture, is in good standing, and has a cumulative grade point average of 3.0 – 3.5.  

Each award will be for $1,000 per year or $500 per semester. Funds will not be given directly to the recipients; rather, the university business office will credit recipients’ tuition and fee expenses each semester.
