The Royal Forestry Society (RFS) is inviting applications for the Randle Travel Bursary, which can be used for independent tree-related travel costs, or to take part in RFS-organised study tours.

Available to all ages, the bursary covers up to £500 of expenses and is provided through the Donald Randle Trust.

A condition of the bursary is that recipients must sumit either a comprehensive written report to the RFS, or an article for the Quarterly Journal of Forestry within three months of their return.

Recent recipients have travelled to Canada to take part in seminars, to Ethiopia to share experiences in urban forestry, investigated Mediterranean species which might prove resilient to climate change in the UK, and studied food trees in the Solomon Islands.

See www.rfs.org.uk/learning/bursaries. Applications should be submitted to the RFS by 5 March 2014.
