Kurt Gottschalk Science Fund: Proposals Due Feb 15

January 16, 2019

The SAF Science Fund was established in 2004 and renamed in 2016 in memory of Kurt W. Gottschalk, a US Forest Service research scientist widely known for his integrity and commitment to mentoring young professionals. The Kurt Gottschalk Science Fund is administered by the SAF Forest Science & Technology Board. The mission of the Fund is to support SAF Working Group communities of interest and practice in the development and dissemination of scientific findings and new technology for foresters and other natural resource professionals and to facilitate science-informed management.

Specific Goals 

Conduct and/or support continuing education activities and the transfer of knowledge, 
Promote collaboration and relationships among SAF entities and with external groups,
Recruit and engage  diverse leadership in forestry and natural resource professions, and 
Conduct and/or support applied forestry research that has potential to inform management practice.

In addition, the Fund annually funds 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place awards for student presentations and posters at the SAF National Convention.

Thanks to the generous support of the Weyerhaeuser Giving Fund, we are able to offer up to three grants in 2019. Grant proposals are due Feb. 15.
