Overview:

Through the generosity of the Trustees of the Donald Randle Trust, the Royal Forestry Society (RFS) is able to offer bursaries to support members to travel overseas to enhance their forestry knowledge. In previous years, bursaries from the Randle Travel Fund (RTF) have helped a large number of RFS members, and promoted significant knowledge sharing and exchange.

Each recipient shared information about their project by writing an article for the Quarterly Journal of Forestry.

If you have ever wanted to see large-scale production forestry and the giant conifer groves in British Columbia or learn more about sustainable forest management in the Black Forest of south-west Germany, why not apply to the Randle Travel Fund? We may not be able to cover all the costs for some projects, but we can help!

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