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.

Industry Award

To further promote personal development, the Gottstein Trust created its Skill Advancement Award in 1998. The Award is a monetary grant that is provided to applicants at any level, who can demonstrate how this support would improve their professional skills and advance their career prospects.

The Award is different from a Fellowship in that it generally covers a lower level of training and it does not usually involve overseas travel. In addition, the report is not required to be as comprehensive as that for a Fellow.

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


  • There are no formal or tertiary educational requirements, although a letter of recommendation from the applicant’s employer is desirable.


  • Fellowships and Awards are given to those currently employed in the Australian forest industries or their associated institutes and are not available to full time students.
