Overview:

The John Wright Memorial Scholarship Program funds one student scholarship per year. This scholarship was established at TREE Fund by Wright Tree Service in honor and memory of its founder, John L. Wright, and his son, John R. Wright.

The purpose of this one-year scholarship is to support the arboriculture industry by helping college students interested in commercial arboriculture achieve high academic goals without accumulating burdensome debt. 

The TREE Fund does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, creed, gender, sexual orientation, disability or national or ethnic origin.

One $5,000 scholarship will be awarded annually, to be paid in full at the start of the fall semester after the spring application cycle (e.g. apply in January to March 2019 for the Fall 2019 Semester). The award is non-renewable, but can be applied for annually. All awards will be paid directly to the educational institution attended by the recipient, in full, after required documentation has been received. Awards may only be applied to tuition expense.
