The Student Scholarship aims to support students in their studies related to the bioforest industry or closely related industries as well as to promote internationalisation.
Every year, PI grants several Student Scholarships to bioforest industry students. The purpose of the Scholarships is to support students in their studies, in finishing their theses (for example travel and living expenses in another region, city or abroad), and especially to promote their internationalisation (including international exchange and traineeships). The Student Scholarships have a value of max. 3 000 euros and are awarded in the spring at the Annual Meeting.
- The Scholarship may be applied retrospectively within one year.
- The applicant must be a member of PI. The applicant must also be an approved member* before the actual exchange period begins.
- The application closes on 15 March.
- Please note that the applicant must be a member of the Association.
Successful applicants are required to submit a report within one year of receiving the Scholarship.
