Professional Training & Development Scholarships

TreePennsylvania, a statewide nonprofit organization, is committed to improving Pennsylvania’s urban and community forests. To that end, the Board of Directors has designated a small scholarship fund to provide access to practitioners, interested individuals, educators, and others to attend in- or out-of-state workshops, conferences or classes that will expand their knowledge about urban and community forestry or tree-related issues in the urban environment. The Scholarship Program awards scholarships on a rolling basis throughout a calendar year until allocated funds are expended.
