Commonwealth Forestry Association launches Young Scientist Research Award for forestry research

The Commonwealth Forestry Association (CFA) has launched a new initiative to promote research into trees by young academics.

The Young Scientist Research Award will offer financial support to Commonwealth students studying forest-related research towards an academic qualification.

"CFA recognises the importance of scientific research in developing our understanding of the growth of forests and their value to society and our planet," said a representative.

The Commonwealth Forestry Association has been promoting the well-being of the world's forests with scientific papers since 1921 and set up initiatives such as the Young Scientist Publication Award.

Entrants should be 35 years of age or under and citizens of a Commonwealth country carrying out research in a Commonwealth country. Up to £1,000 will be awarded once a year.
