Scholarships with the CRC for Forestry

The CRC for Forestry offered a mix of fully funded Masters and PhD scholarships and top-up scholarships, as well as research funding to support all CRC scholarships, and some research funding to support other relevant PhD, Masters and Honours projects. These scholarships were allocated to specific research projects at particular universities.

Education track record

The CRC and its predecessors, though their university participants, were Australia's major source of postgraduate training for researchers in forestry for more than 20 years. Many former CRC-affiliated students now hold key positions in industry, regulatory agencies (e.g. Forest Practices Authority), consultancies, and research positions in Australian universities, CSIRO and other public research agencies.
