The National Wood Flooring Association (NWFA) has announced its new Education & Research Foundation Wood Studies Scholarship.

NWFA’s Wood Studies Scholarship is designed to promote the post-secondary study of forestry and related forestry sciences, according to the association.

This nonrenewable scholarship in the amount of $1,000 will be awarded to a current high school senior who will study forestry in an effort to advance and improve forestry practices for generations to come. The application, which is available for download, and all materials must be postmarked by Feb. 1, 2016. All applicants will be notified by April 29. 

“Trees are a natural resource providing the raw materials that support the livelihoods of those employed in the forestry and flooring industries, including so many members of the NWFA,” said Michael Martin, NWFA's president and CEO.
