NZIF Foundation

The NZIF Foundation was established by the New Zealand Institute of Forestry in December 2011 to advance education in relation to forestry.

This can include encouraging and supporting forestry-related research, education and training through the provision of grants, scholarships and prizes. It also promotes the acquisition, development and dissemination of forestry-related knowledge and information and other activities that do not conflict with the charitable purpose.

In the Trust Deed, "forestry" has been given a broad definition. It includes all those activities involved in the management and use of forests and their products. In determining this wide definition, the NZIF Council wanted to ensure the Foundation could operate across the full spectrum of forests and forestry in New Zealand, both for wood production and other purposes.

The NZIF Foundation is offering the following awards in 2016:

  • Chavasse Travel Award of up to $3,500
  • Mary Sutherland Scholarship of $1,000
  • University Undergraduate Scholarship of $1,000
  • Frank Hutchinson Postgraduate scholarship of $1,000
  • Student Poster prize at NZIF Conference
  • John Dey memorial award of up to $3,500
  • Otago Southland Award of up to $3,000.

A description of all the 2016 awards is below.

The awards are announced at the awards dinner of the NZIF Conference.
