Bursary Information

This RFS bursary is made possible thanks to a generous bequest by the late John Anthony Spencer with the purpose of providing current students or recent graduates of forestry (and related courses) with the opportunity to attend RFS events.

In most years we offer up to 5 Spencer Bursaries to the value of £150 each. The bursary must be used to pay for entry into an approved RFS event, with the rest of the money used for travel and subsistence costs on the day of the event.

Each bursary is worth £150.00, to be collected as a cheque on the day of the event.

Successful applicants should register for a place at the conference (places will be reserved for bursary recipients) and will be presented with a cheque for the Spencer Bursary at the conference. 

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


  • To be eligible for the Spencer Bursary please consider the following criteria: 
    • You must be an undergraduate, or those studying for higher degrees – who are undertaking or have obtained a forestry degree/degree with a major forestry content at a British university.
    • You need to be a RFS student member at the time of your application.
