Gottstein Trust

The Joseph William Gottstein Memorial Trust Fund was established in 1971 as a national education trust to promote the development of Australia’s forest products industry through the pursuit of excellence in people, processes and products.

The Gottstein Trust provides financial support to people employed in the industry who wish to further their education, develop new skills and continue contributing to the industry through their professional development. This is primarily achieved through the awarding of fellowships for international study tours as well as the provision of focused short courses.

Over the years more than 100 Fellowships have been awarded to members of the industry, many of whom now have senior responsibility for many forestry or forest products organisations. The Gottstein Trust aims to maintain it’s relevance to the forest products industry continuing to provide opportunities for people to develop themselves and their industry.


The Gottstein Trust has established a Scholarship fund available for undergraduates or postgraduate students undertaking a bachelor degree, graduate diploma, masters degree or or PhD Program in forest science or wood science. The scholarship provides funds of $5,000 per annum to each successful applicant for up to three years, subject to appropriate progression of study and achievements. The funds will be made available to the Scholarship holder for the purpose of meeting living, relocation and education-related expenses.

You can learn more about this opportunity by visiting the funder's website.
